Algerian Hart Was Honored Over the Summer with the 2014 COEHS Excellence Awards |

Categories: 1990s | Featured

2014 COEHS Excellence in Internationalizing the Campus Award
Prior to coming to Western in 2011, Hart served as the director of diversity research and educational resources in the University of Las Vegas Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion. At WIU, Hart has a dual appointment in the kinesiology and recreation, park and tourism administration (RPTA) departments. According to Department of Kinesiology Chair Janet Wigglesworth, since Hart has been a full-time faculty member in the kinesiology department and coordinator of that department’s sport management master’s degree program, he has “added an international element to both the department and the degree program in which he teaches. In her nomination letter, Wigglesworth wrote: “To expose his students to the global sport arena, he…attended and presented at five international conferences [in 2011, 2012 and 2013]. In addition to Dr. Hart’s presentations at these conferences, he also traveled to some of [them] with WIU sport management graduate students to provide them with valuable experience not only as attendees of the conferences but also as presenters. One cannot measure the impact that international experience has on these students, but their comments upon returning to WIU were valuable to all the students as they shared their stories,” she said.

Hart earned his doctorate in educational administration and leadership from Washington State University (WSU) in 2004; his master’s degree in recreation administration and leisure studies from WSU in 1997; and his bachelor’s degree in sociology from California State University Long Beach in 1994.
