Mission & Vision

  •  Mission  

    The mission of the Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy is to enhance the physical well-being and quality of life of humans by advancing the practice of physical therapy and the science upon which it is based. We accomplish this by:  
      • Carrying out clinical and life science research using interdisciplinary approaches to focus on biokinesiology, that is, the study of the biological bases of both healthy and disordered human movement.  
      • Educating physical therapy practitioners and biokinesiology researchers who will be leaders in their fields.  
      • Providing physical therapy services to the community using innovative models of practice and delivery that will be emulated by our students and will serve as the standards for the profession.
