Two faculty members named fellows in research consortium

April 3, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Two Western Michigan University associate professors have been named research fellows by the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Research Consortium.

Marianne Frauenknecht and Yuanlong Liu from the Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation join the ranks of about 375 researchers who have achieved fellow status, one of the most prestigious honors the Research Consortium can bestow on a member. As fellows, Frauenknecht and Liu may hold elected office in the Research Consortium, serve on selection committees for honors, awards and grants; vote on governance matters; and serve on the editorial board of the Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport.

The Research Consortium is made up of about 4,000 research scholars who contribute to and promote research in the disciplines of health, physical education, recreation and dance. The alliance's 26,000 members represent six national associations.
