Our faculty has many faces, but one mission: Better health and an active lifestyle for everyone. We are the science of health and life, a science so big that it spans many faculties and disciplines. We may be engineers, physicians, nurses or molecular biologists – but we share a vision to create a healthier society. And we look to our students to contribute to this vision through their original research, and to become leaders. In classrooms, in labs, and in our communities. Our students have the opportunity to be mentored by some of the top minds in the field of kinesiology as they work to create a healthier society, by preventing injury, reversing unhealthy habits and by helping people to return to the activities they enjoy as quickly as possible after injury or disease.
