Departmental Statement on Diversity
The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Kinesiology endorses the UW-Madison Institutional Statement on Diversity:
“Diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for UW-Madison.
We value the contributions of each person and respect the profound ways
their identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinion

and to apply those ideas in service of the health and wellness
of all individuals in our community.
We are dedicated to implementing practices, procedures, and structures
that foster the integration of ideas from all members,
and believe this commitment elevates the quality and value of all discourse.
