Leslie Duinink has been an instructor at Central College since 1998. Her undergraduate training was in history and secondary education, but time spent as an athletic training student sparked an interest in athletic training. This led to graduate school in athletic training. Duinink spent four years as a first assistant to an orthopedist and surgical tech before coming back to Central as an assistant athletic trainer.
Since that time she has become a tenured member of the faculty, teaching in athletic training, exercise science and liberal arts studies classes. Duinink has also served as head athletic trainer for eight years and dean of the Class of 2013 and Class of 2017. She is currently serving as the registrar and dean of the Class of 2021.
