Tom Hinch

University Of Alberta

Currently a Professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation at the University of Alberta, Dr. Tom Hinch has drawn on his multidisciplinary background to establish a research and teaching program in the area of tourism.

Dr. Hinch’s research interest focuses on sport-based travel in particular, and sustainable tourism development more generally. He studies the ways that people who travel for sport connect to the places that they visit. The 3rd edition of his book, Sport Tourism Development (Higham & Hinch, 2018) was just published last year.
