A senior academic and administrator in graduate studies, physical education and health from the University of Toronto will be the U of S’s new dean of kinesiology.

Provost and Vice-President Academic Michael Atkinson announced Jan. 19 that Carol Rodgers, U of T Associate Dean of Graduate Studies & Research in the Faculty of Physical Education & Health, will take over as kinesiology dean July 1.

The five-year appointment will be renewable.

Rodgers earned a PhD in physical education (in exercise biochemistry) from the University of Western Ontario in 1989 and she has taught at Michigan State University and most recently at the U of T.

She teaches not only in physical education and health, but also in the faculty of medicine (physiology, community health and exercise science), and has an interest in women’s health. She spent two years as Director of the U of T’s Centre for Girls’ and Women’s Health and Physical Activity.

“Professor Rodgers has a strong research record, is active in the supervision of both graduate and undergraduate students, and participates in committees at all levels in the academy,” Atkinson said.
