History and Mission

The UNT Center for Sport Psychology and Performance Excellence was started in 1998 and over the last decade has become an internationally-recognized leader in the field of sport psychology. Our Center is multidisciplinary, combining knowledge, skills, and expertise from Psychology and Exercise Science to provide comprehensive and individualized sport psychology services, education/training, and research.

The Mission of CSPPE is to:

  2. offer formal, interdisciplinary training in sport psychology to graduate students as well as coaches, trainers, physical therapists, physicians and any other interested and qualified professionals. 
  3. conduct research in sport and exercise psychology and integrate these findings into training and service.
