Supporting Healthy Lifestyles
The Faculty of Kinesiology’s mission is to create, disseminate and apply knowledge about physical activity and its relation to health, wellness and human performance, and to provide opportunities for participation in physical activity at a variety of levels. The overall goal is to improve the quality of human life by championing lifelong health and wellness.
UNB Fredericton's Faculty of Kinesiology offers a number of quality health, fitness, sport and organizational services to the greater community through its various Centres and Programs, which support faculty research and coordinate various experiential learning opportunities for Kinesiology students.
The Faculty of Kinesiology is also a member of UNB’s Fredericton Campus Wellness Committee, which offers a number of wellness experiences and learning opportunities for students, faculty and staff.
The KIN Kids Physical Activity Program is a guided active play program designed to engage children ages 5 to 12 in the simple pleasures and benefits of regular physical activity. Children engage in a variety of FUN, interactive and non-competitive physical activities which are intended to foster increased self-esteem, self-confidence and a positive self-image. Activities are guided by volunteer Kinesiology students.
The Take H.E.A.R.T. Program (Healthy Eating, Active Recreation Today) is currently suspended.
Kinesiology’s Human Performance Laboratory, located in the The Richard J. CURRIE CENTER, will be a center of excellence in innovative and interdisciplinary human movement research. Clinical and industrial research will be conducted through partnerships with organizations such as Horizon New Brunswick, WorkSafe NB, and J.D. Irving Ltd. The Human Performance Laboratory will also provide learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This facility is one of a kind in Canada, and contains a jogging track that bisects the lab. This will enhance and broaden our research capabilities in the field of dynamic movement.
Also located in The Richard J. CURRIE CENTER, our new Quartermain Sport Medicine Clinic will offer services related to the management, treatment and rehabilitation of sport and activity related injuries.
The Faculty of Kinesiology is located in the Lady Beaverbrook Gymnasium (Peter Kelly Drive) on the UNB Fredericton campus.
