Kevin Wilson has worked in recreational programming for approximately 10 years and has a passion for recreational sport, leadership development and community. His research interests include sport participation, sport and recreation facilities, program outcomes and campus recreation. Over the last two years, he's served as a member of the NIRSA Canada Leadership Team. For his PhD, he'd like to conduct research in the Campus Recreation space to help better understand how post-secondary institutions and campus recreation professionals can understand and meet students' changing needs.
