Kinesiology mission statement example

It is the mission of the Department of Kinesiology to create, foster and perpetuate an academic environment and community which transcends social and economic disparity, and focuses upon improving the human condition through education, research, and practical applications related to physical activity, fitness, and wellness, and the biological, psychological, philosophical, social, economic and  personal benefits intimately associated with physical learning, development and achievement.  Related to this mission, it is the philosophy of The Department that positive and formative development of individuals and society, promotion of health, vitality and wellness, and achievement of self-actualization are derived from a foundational understanding of the underlying biological, physical, psychological, sociological and philosophical principles of physical activity, and from the regular practice of physical activities which promote such understanding.  We believe that our students are profoundly influenced by positive working relationships with individual faculty members, who are actively involved in teaching, research, and community outreach.  The Department of Kinesiology is therefore committed to continuous improvement of our curriculum and the process by which we educate our students and conduct research, and to expansion of our interactions with the local and global community.
