Energy, progress, positive change.

In all of its definitions, the word movement
describes the dynamic state of kinesiology today.
Movement encompasses the scientific study of human motion, the
importance of activity on growth and development, the role of sport in
society, the exploration of new directions, and emerging trends.
brings you research findings and thoughtful insights
on developments in kinesiology, as well as continuing updates
on faculty, students, and your fellow alumni.

Clear signs that fall is upon us are evident all around. The temperatures in Ann
Arbor are cool and pleasant, campus is alive with people and activities, and stu-
dents and cars vie once again for the right of way on State Street. There can be
no doubt that a new academic year is well under way!
Whether we are at the start of an academic year or mid-year, one thing we
can count on at Michigan is—things change. Change is inevitable and even nec-
essary for an academic setting like ours to remain viable and vibrant. For exam-
ple, the faculty constantly monitors our curricula and initiates revisions to
reflect changing societal needs and in response to growth in the disciplinary
knowledge base. Faculty in our Sport Management and Communication (SMC) program recently determined
that substantive curricular changes were needed. They are moving this major toward a second-level admission
with an increase in the pre- and post-requisite courses in order to strengthen the sport business core of this under-
graduate degree. The Athletic Training program faculty also instituted practicum and course-related changes as
part of our review for certification of our curriculum by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health
Education Programs (see story on page 2). Our faculty ranks are changing too! Dr. Richard Luker (see page 19)
joined us in September, part-time, as an Adjunct Associate Professor of SMC. Dr. Kathy Babiak will join us in
January as an Assistant Professor in the SMC program. Watch for an article about her in the next issue of
Movement. Many new students arrived on campus this fall too, causing another change, the sort that
we thrive on. We have approximately 750 undergraduates and 30 full-time graduate students this year. These
numbers represent stable enrollment at the undergraduate level compared to last year and a strong increase in
the number of full-time, fully-funded doctoral students. Thanks to the efforts of faculty and alumni the sources
of funding for graduate students are growing steadily via federal research, training grants, and endowments.
All in all, I believe these examples validate the old adage, change is good!
I hope you’ll be able to join us very soon to talk with faculty, students, and me about these changes, first
hand. Our Alumni Reunion on October 25th will present more opportunities than ever to socialize with fellow
alums, meet faculty and staff members, and catch up on current events in Kinesiology. We’ve organized an open
house and tour of the Kinesiology building from 3:30-5:30 p.m. the same day. Current students will be on hand
to “meet and greet” you throughout the building, and faculty will be talking about our programs and research
In this issue of Movement we celebrate the alumni and friends who made monetary gifts to Kinesiology
between July 1, 2001 and June 30, 2002. Thank you for these most valuable contributions. Such gifts make a
significant difference in the teaching, research, and service programs in the Division. They allow us to do many
things that we would otherwise be unable to do or could not do as well. Students and faculty really notice the
impact your support provides.
On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff of Kinesiology, I wish you good health and much happiness.
Enjoy Movement!

Best wishes,

Ruth Harris
Endowment Fund

In 1987, the University of Michigan

Division of Kinesiology worked with
Professor Emerita Ruth W. Harris to
establish the Ruth Harris Endowment
Fund to provide financial assistance
to deserving graduate and doctoral
students. The fund was started with
an initial gift from Ruth and has been
supported through the years by her and
some of her close friends. She realized
that “we needed scholarship money
because we were losing graduate and
doctoral students to other schools who
could offer them more, especially
