Welcome to the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Windsor.

Welcome to the HK Family LANCERS! As Acting Department Head, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Windsor. I can assure you that you have made a great decision in joining our program, even if this year isn’t exactly as you had originally planned. During this time of physical distancing, I can assure you that we are more connected than ever, and the Kinesiology faculty and staff are committed to providing you with the best possible experience!

In addition to your coursework, you will be exposed to a number of different experiences and opportunities during your undergraduate degree.  I can’t say it enough…get involved! You can join HK Society or the KGSA, Kin-One, and/or the numerous student groups on main campus.  You’ll be exposed to co-op, internships, volunteering to be a research participant, or even designing and executing the study yourself working in one the many Kinesiology research labs. There are also opportunities to travel (hopefully) by studying abroad or going to a research conference. We have an outstanding reputation for producing the very best graduates and it is because students get involved and make the most out of their years with us.

The information presented on our website is intended to help you navigate your way through the BHK, MHK, and PhD programs and get you across the finish line in a safe and timely fashion. Please take the time to read it carefully and bookmark it on your desktop so that you can quickly reference it if/when the need arises. Beyond this website, our faculty and staff are always available to assist you with any questions or concerns that you may have along the way. Our faculty and staff have a wealth of knowledge and insights to share with you, and I encourage you to take advantage of our (virtual) office hours to start the year off and hopefully we’ll get back on campus in no time.

I look forward to meeting you all soon and wish you the very best with your studies!

Sarah Woodruff, Ph.D.
