The network

World Leisure Center of Excellence is an international graduate/post-graduate program which offers opportunities for colleges and universities to affiliate with WLO to establish and provide graduate educational programs and research centers focused on play, recreation, the arts, culture, sport, festivals and celebrations, health and fitness, travel and tourism with an international dimension. It gives students, educators, researchers and professionals the chance to participate and contribute to uniquely theme-focused educational endeavors.

Our Centers of Excellence Program receives strong promotional support from the WLO Secretariat, since WLO fosters their leisure studies, disseminates their publications through its website and social media channels, promotes their forthcoming events and so forth. Moreover, WLO Centers of Excellence benefit from the opportunity of using our logo either on their website or on any key document.
