Sport & Exercise Sciences, through its program in Instructional Activities in Sport and Recreation, is committed to providing opportunities for all students, faculty, and staff to pursue healthy and active life-styles by offering activities which lead to the development of lifetime sports skills, recreational pursuits, personal fitness, and wellness.

The Sport and Exercise Sciences (SES) Programs contribute to research-based evidence, and generate new knowledge in their respective academic fields by producing high-quality research that is locally and internationally relevant and ethically responsible. Scientific inquiry within SES develops students’ perspectives about themselves and the world around them, while fostering new and creative ways of thinking. It is also the foundation upon which professional practice knowledge, essential for success in a career, is constructed.
