Vision, Mission and Goals
Improving health and wellness across the lifespan, locally and afar.
Recognizing that the health and wellness of the population depends largely on the lifestyles of its citizens, the University of North Dakota Department of Kinesiology and Public Health Education strives to play a key role in educating about and promoting lifestyle behaviors (e.g., physical activity and sport) and environmental factors (e.g., advocacy) that facilitate comprehensive health and wellness, and in minimizing modifiable risk behaviors and factors (e.g., tobacco use, alcohol abuse) that may adversely impact health and wellness.
- Preparing future leaders for careers in the health professions, including educational, laboratory, clinical, community, and exercise and sport settings;
- Providing educational opportunities to the University of North Dakota community to learn and apply both knowledge and decision-making skills which relate to healthy lifestyles;
- Engaging in and sharing, through collaborative scholarship, the discovery of new knowledge and applied methods that enable individuals and communities to live healthier lives; and
- Offering expertise and service to both the local and broader community and profession.
