Dr. Jennifer Bossi is an Assistant Professor of Kinesiology at Anderson University. Originally from Bristol, CT, Dr. Bossi holds a PhD in exercise physiology from Springfield College, an MS in exercise science from Central Connecticut State University, and a BS in Athletic Training from Wingate University.
Dr. Bossi’s scholarly interests include studying the physiological responses to exercise, specifically how people can use different training and nutritional strategies to improve exercise performance and overall health status. Dr. Bossi also has a special interest in how different environments affect exercise performance. An avid runner, Dr. Bossi believes in the “practice what you teach” philosophy and incorporates many of these exercise and nutritional techniques into her own life.
Despite her ambitious scholarly agenda, Dr. Bossi’s true passion is teaching. In her two years at Anderson University, she has revamped the physiology courses and is in the process of developing the Human Performance Laboratory. She believes that effective teaching is dependent on a balance between classroom instruction and hands-on learning and is passionate about bringing the practical application into her classes.
Dr. Bossi also values the relationships she has developed with her students on both a professional and personal level. College is a critical time for personal growth and development, and Dr. Bossi genuinely enjoys having the opportunity to mentor students during this time.
