Celebrating the connection between schools, conferences, National Governing Bodies and the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee to support student-athletes

About The Campaign

The Olympians Made Here campaign was designed to strengthen Olympic sport programming at the collegiate level. Developed with the USOPC Collegiate Advisory Council, Olympians Made Here serves to elevate national engagement and support of Olympic sport opportunities on campus.

Competing in Olympic sports on campus helps student-athletes grow not just as athletes, but as people. The hard work they put in helps them graduate to the world’s stage, becoming leaders of the future who command the world’s attention.

Collegiate athletes are a critical part of Team USA and national teams around the world, with 85 percent of American medalists at the Olympic Games 2016 having ties to collegiate sport programs.
