Sport Industry Experience

Since 1995 Dr. Julie Powell has served full-time at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, and joined the Liberty faculty in June of 2012. Powell has served in several roles within the university such as sports information director and intramural director before moving into teaching full time in 2000. When Union developed the undergraduate sport management program, she was offered the opportunity to teach and could not resist the opportunity to blend a passion for sports with a love of teaching.  Currently in her 18th year at Union, Powell has been blessed to see the program grow and watch students serve the Lord through sports in various ways. After completing a Doctorate in Sport Management and Leadership in 2009, she has enjoyed teaching graduate students who come from a variety of backgrounds such as teaching, coaching, and sport management.


Personal

Over the years she has combined a love of travel with her profession, taking every opportunity to visit sport facilities and events. In the summer of 2011 she completed a journey to all of the Major League Baseball parks; now, it’s onto other items on the bucket list. .
