Jurgens Presents at AIESEP Conference

Jul 03, 2019

Congratulations to Assistant Professor of Physical Education Shari Jurgens, Ph.D., who recently presented at the International Association for Physical Education in Higher Education (AIESEP) annual conference.

Jurgens spoke on the topic “Motivation to be Physically Active in College Students: Does Previous Athletic Participation Make a Difference?”

The conference took place June 19-22 at Adelphia University in New York. The theme, Building Bridges for Physical Activity and Sport, was chosen to inspire partnerships, connections and shared opportunities for physical education and lifelong physical activity, play and sport through institutions of higher education, schools, and communities.

“The conference was especially fun because it was an international conference, so I was able to make some great connections with other kinesiology professors in higher education around the world,” Jurgens said.
