With the establishment of the world's first department of Kinesiology, the University of Waterloo was instrumental in defining the science of human movement and continues to lead the evolution of this exciting discipline.
Our mission is to optimize health and performance and prevent injury and illness through an understanding of human movement. Our interdisciplinary approach embodies both biophysical and social sciences to address issues from molecular reactions to personal attitudes.
