Our purpose is to inspire and empower organizations to maximize the value of investments that advance communities.

Founded in 1998, CENTERS is the first company in the United States organized solely for the purpose of providing management services for university recreation, fitness, and wellness facilities. Our focus is on student life, educational outcomes, market responsiveness, mission sensitivity, and cost effectiveness.

Unlike any other firm in the industry, CENTERS’ collegiate recreation management expertise and strong technical knowledge across a broad range of issues and activities allow us to provide our clients with management services that produce operational efficiencies and cost savings, while contributing to the vibrant campus community. We seamlessly integrate into our client’s environment to promote their mission and the student experience.

All CENTERS staff members are committed to the profession of collegiate recreation. Many, if not all, of our employees have been working in higher education their entire careers and have earned advanced degrees. In our profession, we continually perform research and engage in industry associations to provide our clients with updated programming trends, management best practices, and most efficient operations. We are actively involved as members of the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association and routinely present on various topics at their national convention and regional conferences.

We are proud to be recognized as the premier collegiate recreation management firm.
