The Hinkle Academy for Wellness and Sport Leadership is an online graduate program experience, preparing front-row leaders in wellness, sport, and allied fields.  You’ll learn about leadership through the lens of sport and wellness and The Butler Way, which “demands commitment, denies selfishness, accepts reality yet seeks improvement every day while putting the team above self.”  You’ll also be connected with sport and wellness organizations in Indiana’s sports-rich environment.

Are you or someone you know interested in personal and professional development to improve career trajectory and marketability?  The Hinkle Academy certificate is a great option for those wishing to expand their expertise, including:

  • Current and future Butler alumni
  • Licensed teachers and coaches in all sports at all levels
  • Volunteer coaches affiliated with schools, churches, community centers, and fitness centers
  • Professionals employed in sport and wellness
  • Individuals seeking career change or entrepreneurial opportunities in education, sports, athlete development, fitness, recreation, and wellness

In this curriculum video excerpt from the Hinkle Academy for Wellness and Sport Leadership, Todd Lickliter ’79, Bulldog head men’s basketball coach from 2001–2007, talks about Brad Stevens and other Butler University coaches handling less recognized, “little jobs” of coaching with the same care given to larger matters, and he talks about passing this lesson onto players.
