Kinesiology's Vision and Mission


Our vision is to be acclaimed for innovation and excellence in research and teaching, and to be recognized for the high quality of our graduates.


Our mission is the discovery, communication and application of knowledge through the multi-disciplinary study of human movement, exercise and the relationships between physical activity and health.  This approach incorporates biological, psychological, sociological, historical, organizational and professional practice perspectives.  We aim to inspire a passion for lifelong learning and discovery, and strive to prepare our students to become leaders and valued members of society.
