Welcome to the Department of Health Science and Recreation.

Our mission is to prepare innovative leaders and practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities to promote health and engage with, understand, and improve the environments in which we live, work and play. Our focus is communities and populations, and the people, policies, environments, resources, supports and opportunities that create the conditions for health for all.

This is a very exciting time in Health Science and Recreation. Our experienced faculty members are involved in exciting research and community projects. Our students are diverse, lively, and deeply engaged in the classroom and the community.

In Health Science and Recreation, we commit to living with joy and purpose, even when times are tough. We look forward to all that is before us! Follow the links in the side bar to the specific programs in our department:
