Curriculum Vitae:

Dr. Welty Peachey's research centers upon sport-for-development and social change, particularly examining inclusive leadership strategies, program design modalities, and program impact. He applies this research focus by working with community-based and non-governmental organizations that use sport for development purposes, to help determine effective leadership strategies and programmatic and structural design features that are sensitive to cultural contexts and the individuals served by the programs. He also works with these organizations to examine how their programs and events can be leveraged for community impact and development.
