Department Chair: Dr. Terry DeWitt
The Department of Kinesiology and Leisure Studies offers programs leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts. The department is dedicated to developing the minds and bodies of men and women in preparing them to become servant leaders in teaching, coaching, and other health and sport-related fields. In this regard, the department is committed to diverse cultural, educational, scientific, and cross-disciplinary approaches that emphasize the total person. We support a broad multi-disciplinary integrative perspective that identifies health education, exercise, sport and skill acquisition as critical factors in preparing students to become healthy, knowledgeable, culturally sensitive, valued adult members of society.
