The top priority in the Faculty of Human Kinetics is the success of our students. We have an outstanding reputation for producing graduates who are among the very best in Canada. It is certainly an exciting time for the faculty given the recent influx of academic appointments and major investment in facilities.
Energy and enthusiasm in the faculty is outstanding. In both the Department of Kinesiology and Department of Athletics and Recreation Services we strive for the highest of standards in a manner that is enjoyable for both staff and students.
In the pursuit of teaching, research and sporting excellence, our people and teamwork count more than anything else. Our student-centred and research-driven undergraduate and postgraduate programs foster lifelong learning.
Students are encouraged to extend their university experience beyond the classroom to both campus and community activities. The quality of university education significantly impacts on future careers. Our goal is to prepare students for the challenges that lie ahead.
Centre for Human Performance and Health will provide a framework for multidisciplinary research and knowledge translation by bringing together experts in Kinesiology to deliver community programs under three priority areas; active and healthy living; sport performance; and workplace training and safety.
Students will benefit from research training and exceptional applied learning opportunities, equipping them with the experience and skills necessary for entering the workforce.
The Lancer Sport and Recreation Centre (LSRC) will enhance UWindsor’s reputation by promoting campus spirit and an exceptional student experience. It will strengthen our ability to attract high-performance students, service the health initiatives of our community, and allow the University to achieve excellence in sport and recreation activities in the decades ahead.
Having access to top-notch sports and recreational facilities will allow thousands of students to experience the benefits of active living, and gain confidence and skills that will benefit them long after they graduate.
Upgrading research and teaching laboratory equipment will keep students and researchers on the leading edge.
