EdD in KIN’s ‘14 Cohort Enters The Homestretch

2014 Cohort

This summer, our very first online cohort reached a major milestone and we couldn’t be more proud. Fourteen students traveled to UNCG to present their dissertation proposals. Proposal Week was a four-day event set up for this group. This event was quite special as it was the first time the whole cohort was required to be together again since orientation. “It was kind of like a family reunion,” says Pam Brown, director of the EdD in KIN program, “some people had gotten married, had children, or changed jobs since they started the program, and it was really special catching up.”

While the ’14 cohort was on campus, they also made a collective donation to Dr. Cathy Ennis’ memorial scholarship fund. This touching and unexpected gesture was made in honor of Dr. Ennis’ personal guidance of the students in this cohort.

With the completion of their comprehensive exams and the defense of their dissertation proposals, this group is on track to graduate next May. The wide range of dissertation proposals demonstrated the interdisciplinary approach of an EdD degree. The students set out to explore and help solve issues related to professional practice in the field of kinesiology, from using physical activity to prevent burnout in social workers, to educating musicians about music-related risks that can harm auditory function, this group covered it all. See the complete list of proposals below.

Our ‘14 cohort is setting an example for the subsequent cohorts, and we look forward to seeing them again next May as they defend their dissertations and graduate!
