Robin Vealey, professor and former chair of physical education, health and sport studies, was recently inducted in the American Academy of Kinesiology and Physical Education.

Induction in the Academy, which is capped at 150 fellows, is highly selective and based on a distinguished record of scholarship in the human movement sciences and outstanding senior leadership in the field.

She has served as editor of The Sports Psychologist and has served on the editorial boards of six other journals. She is a fellow and certified consultant of the Association for the Advancement of Applied Sport Psychology and also served as its president.

Vealey is listed in the U.S. Olympic Committee Sport Psychology Registry and has worked with the U.S. Nordic ski and field hockey teams.
