Professor Emeritus in Kinesiology and Dean Emeritus
Encaenia Ceremony A: May 28, 2008
Christopher Stevenson has distinguished himself as a scholar, educator and administrator throughout his productive career at the University of New Brunswick.
He joined the faculty of kinesiology in 1974 with degrees in science, physical education, sociology, and the sociology of sport, and experience teaching at the secondary and post secondary levels. In his 33 years as professor and dean, his experience and expertise enriched his students and the curriculum at the undergraduate and graduate levels. His background also allowed him to serve as thesis supervisor for students in both kinesiology and sociology.
Despite an often heavy administrative workload, he published numerous book chapters and articles in leading journals, and gave dozens of presentations at national and international scholarly conferences. Some of his articles are the most cited in the field and several were republished in anthologies. He is also an invited contributor to the latest edition of the Blackwell Encyclopaedia of Sociology.
Multiple terms as director of undergraduate and graduate studies, dean of the faculty of kinesiology and six years as a member of the university Senate are testament to Dr. Stevenson’s generous service to the faculty and university.
