Giving Opportunities

Help Build The Future In Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology

Your generous gifts have a direct impact on the lives of students and faculty members. Your support of the Department of Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology impacts the future health of our society.

Your gift directly impacts the Department's goals in research and education aimed at promoting health across the lifespan, preventing and treating chronic disease, and improving athletic performance. The Department requires smart classrooms and teaching space to recruit and retain world-class faculty, and areas for teams of multidisciplinary students to collaborate, and seek academic support.

What Your Gift Could Accomplish

Our students actively present their research at conferences throughout North America. Student travel is funded in part by generous gifts from our donors. Thanks to your continued support, we can send more students out into the future. Learn more about student experiences at the Annual Michigan Space Grant Consortium Fall Conference.

"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."Isaac Wedig ‘23, PhD Integrative Physiology

Your gift to the Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology Seminar Fund brings 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.

Give to the Seminar Series Fund


You can help students get a jump start to their career, gain experience, and network with professionals by pursuing an internship in their field of study. You can help open doors for students to seek experiences not limited solely by personal finances and geography.
