Dr. Terry Shannon
Associate Professor of Health, Leisure and Sport Science
As with many professors, the students are one of Dr. Terry Shannon's favorite things about Oral Roberts University. In his position as Assistant Professor of Sport Management, Dr. Shannon has multiple opportunities to interact with students through the classes he teaches as well as directing Sports Management interns.
Dr. Shannon sees Tulsa, with its many professional sports teams as well as NCAA Division I Athletic programs, as the perfect location to provide Sport Management students with hands-on learning experiences that are not always as readily available at other locations. With the sports industry being one of the largest revenue generating industries in the United States and globally, he is excited to see his students excel in this diverse and growing field.
Prior to joining the Health, Leisure, and Sport Sciences department at ORU, Dr. Shannon coached men's basketball at Oklahoma City University and East Central University. He was an instructor within the Health, Physical Education, and Recreation department at ECU and taught Sports Management at Cameron University. He is also very involved with community service.
