Profile Detail

Leslie Heaphy

Associate Professor

At Kent State at Stark, I teach all the history survey classes as well as courses in Asian history, 20th century US and sports history. I love all sports but especially baseball -- and I have to admit that I am really a New York Mets fan.  I also co-direct the honors program on the Stark campus.
