The sixth annual Department of Health & Kinesiology Distinguished Lecture Series, headlined by the next Southeastern Conference commissioner, will be April 7-8 at Texas A&M University’s Rudder Theatre.
This year’s theme is Health, Kinesiology, and Sport Management in the SEC. The event will feature leading scholars from each SEC institution as well as Greg Sankey, who in March was named the eighth commissioner of the SEC.
Richard Kreider, professor and HLKN department head, says, “We are excited that Mr. Sankey will be speaking at this year’s DLS because it underscores the commitment that the SEC has in promoting scholarly exchange among faculty and students at SEC institutions.”
Sankey, in his 13th year as a member of the SEC staff, has served as executive associate commissioner and chief operating officer for the league office since 2012. He will succeed Mike Slive who has served as SEC commissioner since 2002 and who announced last October that he will retire effective July 31.
Each year, HLKN invites leaders in the fields of health education, kinesiology, sport management and physical activity to present their research to faculty and current students.
Since 2010, the Distinguished Lecture Series has featured eminent individuals to enrich and interact with Texas A&M students, faculty and staff.
Registration is not required and the lectures are free of charge.
Faculty, students, staff, and visitors to the university are invited to attend or watch the presentations online at http://hlkndls.education.tamu.edu.
The Distinguished Lecture Series is supported by HLKN and the College of Education & Human Development.
