My name is Lars Dzikus. I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology, Recreation, and Sport Studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  In my role as Director of Graduate Studies, I will be posting announcements on this website with information that I think might be helpful to the students in our department’s graduate programs.

The disclaimer: My communication on this website is not meant to convey the official word on any University of Tennessee policies and procedures.  It is rather to give you a heads up to information that might be helpful.  You should always go to the official source if you need definitive guidelines (e.g., the UTK Graduate Catalog, Hilltopics, the KRSS Graduate Handbook, and the Graduate School website).  Please remember that it will always be your ultimate responsibility to be informed about policies and procedures that pertain to your graduate program.
