Research Day

This slideshow highlights a sampling of the day's events.

Alumni spotlight

It’s always good to hear from our graduates after they complete their studies and begin a new adventure or career. Recently we asked Lana Huberty to tell us about life after Kinesiology and share her words of advice and wisdom.

Lana started her career at the U of M in 2010 as a doctoral student in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Sport Management. Upon graduating in 2013, Dr. Huberty accepted a position as assistant professor at Concordia University in St. Paul.
