"What does it mean to be a Kinesiology faculty member at UW Oshkosh?"
It is an opportunity to introduce students to think about human movement in ways they likely have not experienced before. It is also a chance for me to grow professionally through interactions with students and other faculty members. It means coming to work each day to enthusiastic students destined to do great things, and co-workers who are committed to our students.

 

"When they graduate from our program, I hope that my students..."
Look at movement in a systematic and scientific way. I hope that they grow to understand the importance of evidence-based and research-based practices, and utilize them whenever possible in their chosen profession.
