We are pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Dao has accepted the History of Sport and International Physical Cultures position and will be joining the KIN Department in the Fall 2019.
Michael Dao recently defended his Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Toronto under the guidance of some of the top sport studies scholars in North America, and previously earned his M.A. degree from our department at San Jose State. His dissertation work involved a year long ethnography of sport for development in Vietnam, and he plans to continue this work, as well as other projects dealing with sport and immigration and other issues here at SJSU.
We are excited to welcome a newly minted Dr. Mike Dao into KIN as an assistant professor.
We look forward to his contributions to teaching and research in our department, and think that we will find that there will be great potential for collaborative work with other faculty.
Please join us in welcoming Michael to the department.

We take time to thank Curt Sennewald for his 25 years of service to the Department.
He has been a tremendous asset since he came to the Department of Human Performance, and continues to be an invaluable member of the team as we are now the Department of Kinesiology.
Curt does a great deal behind the scenes to support our students, classes, faculty and staff.
We cannot begin to express how much he is appreciated and emphasize how much he does that many are not aware of.
Thank you so much Curt for all that you do, and bringing your smile and positive attitude to the Department every day.
We are a better department having you as part of our team.
