Student Athlete Consulting

Engaging students in the classroom and supporting student athletes on and off the field is my focus and passion.  My story as the faculty mentor to the football team, and how that has affected my teaching and approach with students, has been featured in The Chronicle of Higher EducationOpens in a new window and in the NCAA's Champion magazineOpens in a new window.

Sample comments: “Dr. McKay provided us with critical insights into how we can better engage our faculty in order to arrive at successful outcomes for our student [athletes]. As a result of our dialogue, my staff feels empowered to truly open their programs to our faculty in order to take a team approach. While we were already outstanding performers in the classroom, we have pushed that performance to the next level.” - Steve Peed, Director of Athletics, Maine Maritime Academy
