Pease Family Scholar

The Pease Family Scholar endowment was established by Dean A. and Sally C. Pease in 1991. Dean Pease was a long time faculty member in the department and chaired what was then the Department of Health and Human Performance (now Kinesiology) from 1987 until 1990. Prior to his untimely death in 1994, Dean and Sally established an endowment in memory of Dean’s parents, Harvey and Bomell Pease. This endowment supports three programs that benefit students and faculty at Iowa State University in perpetuity.

The greatest proportion of the Pease gift was used to create a “scholar-in-residence fund” for the department. The annual earnings from this fund allow the department to bring a leading scholar in kinesiology to campus each year for extensive interactions with faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. The Pease Family Scholar Lecture is the featured event during the scholar’s visit and is one of the major highlights in the Department of Kinesiology each academic year.
