Sport Integrity

The University of Canberra (UC) Sport Strategy & Implementation Plan 2021 – 2026, launched on 16 June 2021, set out the vision for UC to be Australia’s leading sport university.  The intention is that UC should be known for a focus on Women in Sport and Sports Integrity.

As pointed out by Prof Manuel B. Graeber, President, Australian Association of University Professors: “cutting edge teaching requires teaching by researchers who work at the cutting edge” (16/3/21).  To create a cutting-edge Sport Integrity Research Theme requires a team of researchers and teachers to support the demand for excellence in this field internationally.  Dr Catherine Ordway is the Sport Integrity Research Lead at UC-RISE and is Assistant Professor (Sport Management).
