Zimmer, Wendi Clinical Assistant Professor


The goal of my research agenda is threefold. First, to explore the impact of mindset on mental health development and support. Second, to develop and disseminate strategies for enhancing writing, communication, and critical thinking skills at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Third, to connect identity research and instructional strategies through a sport lens. Specifically, my research strands focus on sport education and emphasize; (a) the impact of communication on sport identity and fandom, (b) identity development as it relates to sport writing/communication, (c) the need for writing and critical thinking skills in the sport industry, and (d) coping strategies tied to mindset to increase mental health for increased life satisfaction perceptions.
