The mission of the UMass Lowell Career Services & Cooperative Education Center is to help students successfully transition from their academic pursuits to their career goals by promoting and facilitating career education, exploration of options and connections with employers. The sports industry engages people, activities, business, and organizations in the production, facilitation, promotion or organization of any experience, activity or business enterprise focused on sports.

The Sports Collaborative for Open Research and Education (SCORE) working with the Career and Co-op Center can help both students with career goals in sports and sports employers connect.
