Plans are being made for the Deborah L. Feltz Sport, Exercise and Human Movement Science in Africa Lecture Series to have its inaugural presentation in fall 2018. (Dr. Alison September)

About Deborah Feltz:

"I wanted to be able to give back," said University Distinguished Professor Deborah Feltz prior to retiring from Michigan State University this spring after 37 years of service. "I wanted to help—to be a catalyst for good, collaborative research partnerships that I thought people doing research in any aspect of kinesiology could benefit from." That is why she has established an endowment supporting a new lecture series: the "Deborah L. Feltz Lecture on Sport, Exercise and Human Movement Science in Africa," in the Department of Kinesiology.

The biennial series will help bring an African scholar from a higher education institution to present on a topic connected to physical education, exercise science or public health, among other related areas of study.

Feltz hopes the MSU community will benefit from the series by being exposed to international work, and potentially finding new areas of collaborations and partnerships.

In fact, it was a collaboration that initiated Feltz's connection with the continent in the first place.
