George Cunningham, professor and director of the Laboratory for Diversity in Sport, has been named as incoming editor for the Journal of Intercollegiate Sport (JIS). The mission of the Journal of Intercollegiate Sport is to stimulate and disseminate research on intercollegiate sport.

This research may have theoretical, as well as practical significance and thereby contribute both to our understanding of intercollegiate athletics and efforts to effect change or reform.

JIS supports research that either reinforces or challenges current practice, but it does not publish articles that are editorial or polemical in nature.

Cunningham has published over 100 journal articles and book chapters, has written an award-winning textbook (Diversity in Sport Organizations) and has received external funding for his research from a variety of entities, including the NCAA.

He also served as president of the North American Society for Sport Management during the 2009-2010 academic year.
