Marlene Link Dixon, Ph.D., '93 is a professor, sport management scholar, administrator, world traveler, life skills mentor, coach, as well as being a wife and mom. She's also the recipient of the North American Society for Sport Management's 2019 Ziegler Award, the most prestigious NASSM honor.

Dixon is a professor and chair of graduate studies in the health and kinesiology department at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. Within the department, she teaches and conducts research in the area of sport management. Prior to heading to Aggieland, Dixon was an associate professor in sport management at the University of Texas at Austin (UT).

The multi-talented Dixon played Tiger basketball for four years and volleyball for two. After graduating with a double-major in biology and sociology, Dixon returned to Trinity to become an assistant for women's basketball, under the direction of her former coach, Becky Geyer.

Dixon earned a Master of Education degree in sport management from UT, and also was a volleyball and basketball assistant coach at Southwestern (TX) University. She then received a doctoral degree in sport management from The Ohio State University.

Originally, Dixon planned to major in chemistry during her undergraduate years at Trinity. However, Dixon discovered she enjoyed dealing with the "whole person."

"In biology, I was, and continue to be fascinated by human performance. In sociology, I gained an appreciation for humans in contexts. Both of these influenced my desire to go into academia, and in the area of sport management," said Dixon.
