A Message from the Director of the School of Kinesiology

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the School of Kinesiology for the 2020-21 academic year.  Whether it will be your first semester at UFV or your last, I imagine the fall 2020 semester is not what you envisioned.

While the path ahead is likely to include some uncertainty and unexpected challenges, the members of the School of Kinesiology are dedicated to delivering high-quality, meaningful education that prioritizes the student experience and provides opportunities to connect, reflect, and explore.  While we may not be able to all meet on campus, please be reassured that faculty have been working carefully and collectively to ensure your learning environment remains positive, supportive, inclusive, and engaging.

In light of these extraordinary times, I sincerely believe the value of professionals with the ability to understand and apply the knowledge of the Kinesiology-related disciplines to health could not be more important.  We, in the School of Kinesiology, are proud to be a part of your journey down this path and a play a role in your preparation as future leaders in Kinesiology.

I wish you all the best during the 2020-21 academic year.  Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay active.

Jason Brandenburg

Director, School of Kinesiology
