About the Board

The uniqueness of the Academy can never be overstated. Put in very simple terms, the Academy is here to serve its students. All students, even those enrolled for the first time in the Bachelor's, Master's, Doctoral or Continuing Education degree programs, are members of the Alumni Association. This means, among other things, that every Academy student can "network" with every other alumnus to exchange professional information or career advancement information.

The Alumni Association features one of the largest networks in the sports profession. During the past 40 years, thousands of students have graduated from the Academy. Many have moved into the higher echelons of sport, where their impact is immeasurable. Their influence is felt every day at the Academy; institutional research shows that alumni are the top source for new student referrals.

The Academy is proud of the success of its alumni. We want to hear from you. Please email us at alumni@ussa.edu.

If you would like to join the Academy's Alumni Association, all you have to do is join our Alumni Association group on Facebook. Again, membership is FREE. We could also like to encourage you to "Like" the Academy's main Facebook page. These are great ways to stay current with the university and your colleagues.
