Matt Huml

Assoc Professor, CECH Human Services

Dr. Huml is originally from the Chicago suburbs. He completed his associates at Kishwaukee Community College, his bachelors and masters at Grand Valley State University (Go Lakers!), and his doctorate from University of Louisville. My research interests fall into two areas. First is the examination of employee experiences within the sport industry context. The heightened demands, pressure, travel, and workplace culture faced by employees, and its effect on their work and family dynamics, is especially interesting to me. My secondary interest is within the academic experiences of college athletes. This provides me opportunities to connect my past experiences (former athlete, former advisor) with the current environment experienced by athletes.
