Your gifts impact the future wellness of our society. The Department of Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology’s goals in research and education are aimed at promoting an active lifestyle and healthy lifespan for everyone, regardless of age and fitness level.
Monetary gifts go toward attracting top-notch faculty, supporting research programs and innovative curricula, and maintaining research/teaching facilities and equipment. These educational components underpin our goal of becoming nationally recognized for offering excellent programs in the areas of kinesiology and integrative physiology.
Research Seed Fund
We value research and want our students to get started right away on what they are passionate about. The Research Seed Fund allows undergraduate or graduate students to create student-initiated projects and put to the test what they have learned.
Teaching and Equipment Fund
Build up our labs and provide additional resources for our faculty and students to help our department grow and secure more research grants. Consider making a contribution to the Teaching and Equipment Fund today!
Student Travel Fund
Whether it's collaborating with peers, meeting new people, learning new tools, or breaking out of their comfort zone, when students attend conferences, they rise above the rest. With your generous donation, students will be able to travel to conferences, present papers or posters, and network with their peers.
Student Internship Fund
Students can get a jump start to their career, gain experience, and network with professionals by pursuing an internship in their field of study. Some internships are required at sites across the country; you can help open doors for students to seek experiences not limited solely by personal finances and geography.
An unrestricted gift to the Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology General Fund gives the department the flexibility to support immediate priorities and respond to emerging opportunities. Every gift supports our students’ education through programs, endowments, scholarships, and improved facilities.
Seminar Series Fund
Gifts to the Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology Seminar Fund bring nationally and internationally renowned scientists to campus, enhancing the educational experience of current students. These visiting scholars spend the day with faculty and students, answer questions, and present a research seminar for the department.

What Your Gift Could Accomplish
With a gift from donors, students had the opportunity to travel to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor to attend the Michigan Space Grant Consortium (MSGC) Fall Conference this past fall. The students had the honor of meeting the keynote speaker, Dr. Tony England, a NASA astronaut who spoke about his experiences and insights during his involvement with the Apollo and Space Shuttle programs. During the conference, two students gave individual presentations in addition to the group presentation.
"The conference provided a great opportunity to meet and interact with professionals of many different fields, from astrophysics to geology, and gave us practice communicating our expertise across varying domains."
We are happy that travel for our students was funded in part by generous gifts from our donors. We are working to ensure more opportunities like this for our students!
