What is The RBI
The Rose Bowl Institute champions sportsmanship, leadership, and citizenship. Through educational programs, focused dialogues, and awards, the Institute leverages the power of sports to unite people everywhere.
More than any other venue, The Rose Bowl Stadium is associated in the American imagination with the highest qualities in sports competition, sportsmanship, leadership and healthy entertainment.
It is therefore fitting that this venue would serve as the home of a classical “Hellenic” program for the development of a well-balanced individual and a healthy community. The Rose Bowl Institute, which combines the iconic Rose Bowl venue with the convening of sports and civic leadership, is the logical forum for public discussion and promotion of sports values, civic virtues, and the betterment of society.
