Kinesiology Student Council

With the support of the School of Kinesiology, the Kinesiology Student Council has organized, and is currently accepting submissions for the 2016 Kinesiology Research Day. This event will be an opportunity for faculty members, graduate students, undergraduate students and staff from the School of Kinesiology and allied departments to interact in an interdisciplinary forum, exchange ideas and present their achievements.

How a sporting event positively affects residents in a Cambodian city

Sport management professor Yuhei Inoue explores how a Cambodian community can be brought together by a major international sporting event. In December he traveled to Siem Reap, Cambodia to collect data for this research project.

Alumni spotlight

Josh Lupinek started in the PhD program in Fall 2012 in the Sport Management emphasis. He began a tenure-track position at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks this fall, teaching two courses and working on developing a sport sales or event management course. The U of A is hoping to grow their sport management minor into a major concentration, and Josh will be instrumental in that process.
