Faculty Associate

Michelle Sabick, Ph.D., Dean of Parks College
Michelle Sabick, Ph.D. has focused on research areas including orthopaedic biomechanics, specifically in the upper extremity of baseball pitchers, wheelchair users and laborers, and medical device development. Sabick has worked on more than 20 funded research projects and holds two patents. Additionally, she has made more than 70 conference presentations and has obtained funding for enhancing undergraduate teaching by infusing classroom lectures with more interactive and hands-on learning activities.

The thing I love the most about living in the Engineering and Innovation Learning Community is that you get to live on the same floor with the people who will be in your classes for the next four years. This guarantees that you’ll have some amazing friends and resources not only for your first year, but for the rest of college, as well.
