Kinesiology Graduate Student Association (KGSA)

The Kinesiology Graduate Student Association (KGSA) is a student body which represents three academic streams (biomechanics, physiology and nutrition, and neuroscience) within the Department of Kinesiology. The KGSA executive speaks on behalf of these students in department, Faculty, and university wide councils. The KGSA is a small part of the university wide Graduate Student Association. A primary goal is to enhance the experience of our graduate students through social and recreational events.


Each calendar year a new executive is elected at an annual general meeting held in late April. The current KGSA executive typically meets once a month to discuss and vote on positions relating to current events within departmental/faculty/university administration levels.

Details on executive member roles and voting requirements are noted in the KGSA constitution.

    Attention KIN graduate students. It's that time of year again. The KGSA annual general meeting (AGM) will be held in less than a month (exact time and location will be announced soon). That means that if you, or any of your Kin grad student colleagues, are interested in any of the executive positions, please let us know:

    All positions (except Past President) are open. In cases where multiple people are nominated, an online vote will determine the winner.

Dr. Steven Fischer's group represented UW at this meeting, sharing their instrumental work aimed at understanding causes of musculoskeletal disorders in paramedics and assessing interventions designed to reduce injury burdens in this population.
