Dr. Marlene Dixon appointed Department Head of KNSM

After a year as interim department head, Dr. Marlene A. Dixon has been appointed the new head of our School’s Department of Kinesiology and Sport Management (KNSM).

Dr. Dixon has several goals for the department, including providing support for all tenured and tenure-track faculty to secure impactful funding for their research and building industry panels to enhance curricular relevance and students’ career preparation. She also aims to continue KNSM’s ‘On the Move’ podcast to highlight the vibrant people and programs that continue to advance the department.

Dixon said she is excited to continue her new role for the next several years. “We have so many excellent and important things going on in our department,” she shared. “I am proud and pleased to help see them develop to maximum impact.”

Dixon has over 30 years of experience in higher learning and has made significant contributions to the field through her research, teaching, coaching, and administrative roles. Dr. Michael A. de Miranda, Dean of the School of Education and Human Development, calls her, “a true leader and difference maker for our School.”
