We invite graduate students (and senior undergraduate student pursuing research) interested in any aspect of leisure, recreation, sport, and tourism research to attend the Symposium, and to take advantage of this unique opportunity for scholarly and professional growth.

The primary objectives of the Symposium are:

  1. To offer students the opportunity to present their research and ideas in a supportive, inclusive atmosphere.
  2. To advance the state of knowledge about leisure, recreation, sport, and tourism through a public forum of shared research.
  3. To facilitate scholarly communication among students and faculty interested in leisure research, and to create the opportunity for constructive criticism and debate.
