EC Lane and MN Zimmerman Endowed Professor
Board of Trustees Professor
Distinguished Engagement Professor
I specialize in the Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility (TPSR) instructional model. My scholarship is very applied and relates directly to fields such as positive youth development, social and emotional learning, and sport for development. I also have interests in policy and program evaluation as it relates to youth sport and physical activity. I lead the Physical Activity and Life Skills (PALS) Group at NIU which serves as an engine for engaged scholarship on these topics.
