Master of Education with an emphasis in Athletic Coaching Leadership

Athletic Coaching Leadership (4058)

The goal of the Athletic Coaching Leadership (ACL) concentration is to provide well qualified coaches for all levels of sports programs. The ACL strives to address the diverse needs of the coaching profession and respond to the changing needs of prospective and practicing coaches. The ACL will not be sport specific. It will continue to develop appropriate sport and situation specific program content to ensure the enjoyment, safety and positive skills development of America’s coaches.

The relationship between academics and athletics at the University of Rio Grande/Rio Grande Community College is based on mutual support, respect, and a commitment to: provide high quality programs that reflect positively on the institution; teach the importance of striving for excellence in every endeavor; advance the mission of the institution; and promote the five core values as spelled out by the NAIA Champions of Character initiatives. The University of Rio Grande is committed to achieving and maintaining equality of opportunity in intercollegiate athletics without regard to race or gender.
