"What does it mean to be a Kinesiology faculty member at UW Oshkosh?"
The Department of Kinesiology is a young and energetic staff committed to providing students with the most up-to-date information and a willingness to prepare them for future professions. I take great pride in being a part of this staff and seeing young students mature over time in the Athletic Training Education Program. Helping and being part of their education and then seeing them graduate and prosper as young professionals is a very self rewarding experience. The feedback from students and employers after they graduate is that UW Oshkosh prepared them very well for their athletic training profession. I believe this positive feedback is a result of the departments willingness to help in anyway possible and to see students succeed highly, which speaks volumes for this department.


"When they graduate from our program, I hope that my students..."
...are able to bring knowledge from our program to their future employer and have success and happiness.
