Dr. Erianne Weight

Erianne Weight is the Director of the Center for Research in Intercollegiate Athletics and an Associate Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her widely-cited research is directed by the vision of increasing and enhancing opportunities for intercollegiate athletics participation and education with a current focus of quantifying the benefits of participation in intercollegiate athletics. She has worked with university administrators and faculty senate leaders throughout the country and is an active consultant in intercollegiate athletics. She is also the lead author on a Human Kinetics textbook entitled Administration in Intercollegiate Athletics. She earned her Ph.D. in Sport Marketing and Management from Indiana University, and her B.S. in Exercise and Sport Science and M.B.A. from the University of Utah where she competed as a heptathlete.

“In the increasingly scrutinized and unpredictable era of intercollegiate athletics, it is imperative for athletics administrators to enact data-driven decisions. My hope is to empower industry leaders by providing data about the impact of intercollegiate athletics on their campuses. Through maximizing the educational value of athletics participation, administrators can highlight objective research on the benefits of participation in intercollegiate athletics that are largely invisible to much of the world and through this effort share a story very different than the one often being told on their behalf.”
