The Department's mission is to research, teach and apply knowledge related to movement, exercise and human occupation with the ultimate goal of enhancing human health, productivity, and quality of life.  Regular physical activity reduces the risk of developing or dying from some of the leading causes of illness and death in the United States, so the study of movement, exercise and occupation has the potential to dramatically impact health and quality of life.

SPOTLIGHT

KinesiologyStudents help train high schoolers to lead summer MSCR programs

Students from UW-Madison’s School of Education helped train 50 high school students from the area about how to become site leaders for summer programming run by Madison School & Community Recreation (MSCR), which is the public recreation provider for residents of Madison.

The students who took part in this service activity at the Memorial Union in April included Maddie Flynn, Lue Yang and Noah Sevett of the Physical Education Teacher Education program within the Department of Kinesiology, and Melanie Kirkwood (Secondary English) and Brianna Blue (Elementary Education).

Cindy Kuhrasch, who coordinates the Physical Education Teacher Education program, trained the UW-Madison students and put together the training session and teaching materials, as well as facilitated the training event. To learn more, check out this story.
