Why Lynn?

Charles Barr believes that Lynn University's small class size allows him to get to know his students personally and understand their professional goals. This permits him to present the course information in a way that is relevant to their career goals and personal interests. Not only does it help keep their attention, it also makes the new information seem familiar, drawing the students into the course. Barr believes that South Florida is the perfect location for sports management students because they are surrounded by a living lab of healthy living and active lifestyles. Having unparalleled recreational sports programs provided by Palm Beach County, and Lynn's professional sports teams are not only diverse (covering football, basketball, baseball, hockey and pro racing), but they are easily accessible to students. Barr believes that this is indeed what makes the Lynn University Sports Management program ideal for serious students looking for a distinct advantage in the field.

Teaching Philosophy:

Charles Barr diversifies his classes, as well as his teaching style to challenge students on a daily basis. In his sports seminar course he employs a debate format which provides students with the opportunity to develop their critical thinking and reasoning skills. During the sports ethics lectures, Barr encourages students to break up into small groups and discuss various ethical dilemmas before moving forward in the chapter. Students in his sports marketing course work on actual bids for marketing contracts and get a hands-on approach that compliments the curriculum. All of the courses that Barr teaches are designed to provide students with multiple methods of exhibiting their mastery of the course material. Traditional testing methods are still used, but in conjunction with projects, papers, presentations and discussions.
