Mission Statement for Kinesiology & Outdoor Recreation

The mission of the Department of Kinesiology and Outdoor Recreation is to equip future leaders, practitioners, and scholars in Kinesiology and Outdoor Recreation to contribute to a diverse society through innovative and engaging instruction, scholarship, and professional service.

We hope that graduates from KOR degrees will

  • appreciate, apply, and teach technical, communication, and awareness skills;
  • demonstrate knowledge of rules, strategies, and appropriate behaviors for selected disciplines and physical activities which include coaching, athletic training, intramurals, and health education;
  • demonstrate competency in outdoor leadership, wilderness medicine, land management, programming and administration, and interpretation;
  • identify benefits, costs, and obligations associated with regular participation in physical activity and outdoor recreation as well as recognize the risk and safety factors associated with participation;
  • understand that wellness involves more than being physically fit and sport and leisure provide an opportunity for enjoyment, self-expression, environmental awareness, communication, and a common unifying experience that transcends social and cultural differences;
  • cherish the feelings that result from regular participation in physical activity and outdoor recreation; and
  • respect the role that regular leisure plays in the pursuit of lifelong health and happiness.
