The Kinesiology department at UNCG has a long history of successful community collaborations. Fulfilling the departmental mission, many of our community partnerships are multi-disciplinary and focus on translating knowledge to practice. The department works with individuals of all ages ranging from children to older adults and across many settings, including local school systems, hospital and clinics, colleges and universities, and athletic teams.
Community partnerships are central to the Kinesiology department’s vision and benefit community members as well as Kinesiology faculty and students. The overarching aim of many of the collaborations is to promote healthy lifestyles and lifetime physical activity. Kinesiology faculty members conduct funded research projects within the community and in conjunction with local organizations. Additionally, Kinesiology students are actively engaged in the community through research, service projects, and internships.
