The SHARP Center was initially established by a three-year grant from the Women’s Sports Foundation (WSF) through a collaboration between the WSF, the University of Michigan’s Institute for Research on Women and Gender and U-M’S School of Kinesiology.

SHARP is now a center within the Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWG) at the University of Michigan, in frequent collaboration with the School of Kinesiology.
