The David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics brings together Syracuse University’s professional programs in Child and Family Studies, Health and Wellness, Hospitality Management, Marriage and Family Therapy, Nutrition Science and Dietetics, Social Work, and Sport Management in an environment of cross-disciplinary teaching, research, practice, and service. Through classroom learning and hands-on experience, our students learn by example—and by doing—to become professionals who will provide services that enhance the emotional and physical well-being of individuals, families, and communities. The College of Human Ecology and the College’s Falk Center for Sport Management became the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics in 2011 in recognition of generous support from Syracuse University alumni, David B. Falk ’72 and Rhonda S. Falk ’74. The David B. Falk Center for Sport Management was established in 2008. The College of Nursing had existed since 1943. The School of Social Work has existed since 1946, and the College for Human Development was originally founded as the College of Agriculture in 1917. Each of these units has provided the foundation for what is known today as the Falk College, which is the alumni home for graduates of these colleges, as well as other precursors, including the College of Human Services and Health Professions and the College of Human Ecology.
