EXSS Mission Statement
The mission of the Department of Kinesiology is to enhance health and wellness through understanding physical activity. This is accomplished through instruction, research, and service related to the behavioral, biomechanical, pedagogical, physiological, managerial, and socio-cultural aspects of physical activity as they impact on learning movement patterns, disease prevention, and participation in physical activity, exercise and sport. The department prepares knowledgeable leaders at both the undergraduate and graduate levels who can guide individuals, groups, or organizations for the purpose of increasing lifelong participation in regular physical activity and sport.
