The Department of Exercise and Sport Science is recognizing one of its finest professors, and former Department chair, Dr. Frederick O. Mueller, by establishing a gathering place in his name between Woollen and Fetzer Gyms. This gathering place will include reading benches and a landscaped garden with flowers and shrubbery that will grace our complex. This area will give students, faculty and staff an aesthetic place to gather, read, and socialize.

Dr. Fred Mueller has been a member of the faculty for 41years and chaired the department from 1995-2005. Dr. Mueller has deep roots with UNC Chapel Hill even before becoming faculty. He is originally from New Jersey, and first enrolled as a freshman at UNC-CH in the fall of 1956. He completed his BA in Education in 1961, an M.Ed. in Education in 1964, and a Ph.D. in Education in 1970, all three degrees from UNC-CH. During his career at Carolina, he has been an assistant football coach, head lacrosse coach, served as Director of the freshman activities program, and directed the undergraduate physical education majors program. Dr. Mueller is a seasoned instructor, administrator, researcher, fitness advocate, and EXSS historian. Please join us in honoring Dr. Fred Mueller by contributing to Mueller’s Gathering Place. You can donate to this effort by sending your contribution in the enclosed business reply envelope of this publication.
