UCR Center for Athletes' Rights and Equity

The UCR Center for Athletes’ Rights and Equity (CARE), established in 2020, is an interdisciplinary engaged research center focused on the rights and collective well-being of athletes across all levels of competition. CARE’s mission is to address structural inequalities in sport and to create better, more equitable experiences and outcomes for amateur, collegiate, and professional athletes. 

CARE prioritizes research with an overarching goal to inspire, engage, educate, and empower sport and education leaders and athletes themselves—and to holistically prepare athletes for sustainable professional careers beyond sport. With our innovative and cutting-edge research, educational programs, learning sessions, community outreach, and diverse partnerships, CARE serves as a unique and leading resource to advance knowledge and contribute to a more vibrant, inclusive, and equitable future for athletes.
