About Us

There has never been a more exciting or more important time to become involved in health and health-related industries or to apply knowledge about human movement and physical activity as represented in exercise, dance, play, sport, and work in the kinesiology field.
While professors in the Department of Kinesiology and Community Health generally pursue research aimed at improving the quality of life for all populations, their specific research interests are diverse. They are widely published in leading professional journals, active in organizations related to their research interests, and deeply involved in outreach activities that benefit individuals and communities.
Whether it is helping students to secure valuable practical experience outside the classroom or giving them the opportunity to develop and sharpen research skills, faculty and advisors in Kinesiology and Community Health go the extra mile to enable students to pursue their own interests, educational goals, and career aspirations.
