The Feasibility Study Process

This analysis examines the potential impacts of proposed initiatives on intercollegiate athletics’ operations, services provided by the institution, as well as economic implications. A systematic and empirically sound Feasibility Study enhances the success rate of proposed plans.

  • Financial forecasting
  • Personnel and organizational design
  • Student-athlete well-being and performance
  • Student-athlete support services
  • Facilities and space analysis
  • Facilities maintenance
  • Information technology
  • Sport sponsorship
  • Sport competitive expectations
  • Sport scheduling
  • Conference affiliation
