Mission

The School of Kinesiology seeks to study, understand, practice, and promote human physical activity and wellness. Because physical activity and wellness are human phenomena, kinesiology is a holistic discipline that examines physical activity and wellness in a truly inter-disciplinary manner. The School of Kinesiology embraces humanistic, scientific, professional, theoretical, and practical inquiry into physical activity, health, and wellness. This breadth of perspectives allows the members of the School of Kinesiology—both faculty and students—to pursue a variety of ends including: athletic training, biomechanics, disease prevention, exercise science, fitness, health promotion, play, rehabilitation, and sport and sport management.
