Martha Ewing was an associate professor of kinesiology. She has written in the area of achievement motivation with a focus on youth in sport. She was involved in research aimed at assessing why youth drop out of sports, why coaches (particularly women) drop out, and how to alter sport programs to retain both coaches and youth. In the applied arena, she had worked on developing a way to assess the effectiveness of the delivery of sport psychology services as well as the effectiveness of psychological skills training with athletes.
