Sharing Our Student Research: First Research Symposium is Overwhelming Success

featuredsRESEARCHseal_opt.fw.png The School of Kinesiology’s student subcommittee of the Graduate Education Committee hosted the first Kinesiology Research Symposium in April. The symposium consisted of two sessions of presentations by graduate students. Justin Geijer, Amanda Williams, and Lana Huberty presented in the first part of the day, while Andrea Stark, Tyler Bosch, and Patrick Wilson presented in the second, covering a wide range of topics in the discipline of kinesiology.

Posters represented research being conducted across all sub-disciplines of kinesiology. Co-chairs and doctoral students, Ayanna Franklin and Reed Steele, described the event as a great way for students to showcase their work to the community. Steele noted that the event “exceeded their expectations.”
The graduate student subcommittee hopes to make this an annual event and are exploring the possibility of inviting other units in CEHD to learn about the great student research happening in the School of Kinesiology. ✍ -Brenda Senger & Emily Corken, Communications Assistants
