Diane Whaley

Guest Lecture by Dr. Diane Whaley
"The Role of the Self in Women's Exercise Behavior"
Linda Arnold Carlisle Professorship Lecture & Reception

Friday March 1st, 2013, 2pm-4pm
EUC, Claxton Room

Dr. Diane Whaley is a Professor in Educational Psychology/Applied Developmental Sciences in the Curry School. She teaches courses in sport and exercise psychology, motivation, and lifespan development. She is the Director of the Lifetime Physical Activity program, overseeing 35 sport and activity classes each semester that serve about 600 students. She also serves as the Co-Chair of the Curry Diversity Committee and is on the UVA Women's Center Advisory Council. She earned her doctorate in Exercise and Sport Sciences at Oregon State University after receiving her Masters and Bachelors degrees from the University of Rhode Island. Dr. Whaley's research explores how social, cognitive, and affective factors influence exercise participation and adherence across the life span, and how individual differences like age, gender, and race impact those decisions. She is particularly interested in issues of identity and self, including views we have of ourselves in the present and views of ourselves in the future ("possible selves"). She works extensively in her local community to develop effective strategies to encourage healthy eating and a physically active lifestyle for individuals and their families. Diane was an active sport participant through high school and college and has remained active, although the focus of her activity has shifted to non-sport activities like hiking, gardening, and kayaking.
