Recent Departure of Long Time Exercise Science and Athletic Training Department Faculty

By John Sigg, July 23, 2021

It is bittersweet to announce to the campus community the departure of two long-time valued colleagues.

Paul Geisler, Professor and Athletic Training Program Director, has recently accepted a new position as Associate Dean of Health Sciences at Simmons University.  Paul’s dedication to athletic training education at IC is beyond description.  He has served as Program Director for over 15 years since his arrival in 2005.  He has advanced our program in countless ways, including the recent approval of our dual degree Master’s program in Athletic Training.  His passion for health education, learning and assessment will be impossible to replace. 

Frank Micale, Clinical Associate Professor and Wellness Clinic Director, will be retiring this month and taking on a new role at the University of Northern Arizona.  Frank has given over 30 years of service to IC and has impacted countless students through his teaching and clinical expertise.  He has also touched the lives of so many faculty and staff with his work in the Wellness Clinic.  The foundation he has laid for Wellness at IC will serve us well into the future.  His joy and energy will certainly be missed by all!

We wish both Paul and Frank all the best as they begin a new stage in their professional lives.  Be well and know that you will always be a Bomber!
