Laura Misener

Dr. Laura Misener is an Associate Professor in the School of Kinesiology at Western University (London, Ontario, Canada). Her research focuses on how sport and events can be used as instruments of social change with a particular emphasis on how sport for persons with disability can positively impact community accessibility and social inclusion. Her research program is interdisciplinary in nature and pushes the traditional boundaries of sport management to emphasize the importance of critical scholarship for innovation.

Dr. Misener’s research recognizes that sport is a multilevel enterprise, so it examines the spectrum of community sport organizations to elite sport systems, including the Olympic and Paralympic Movements. In order to understand the ramifications of sport and physical activity, her work considers the linkages between sport and other industries, particularly health, leisure, urban development, tourism, and recreation.

Excited to see this work with @Ramon_Spaaij & @lmisene out in @FrontSportsAL

Hoping to generate some discussion with @NASSM @SMAANZBoard & @EASMBoard Colleagues!
