Optional Department Information:

The School of Kinesiology is currently one of seven academic units in the College of Health at Ball State University. The School is housed in the Health and Physical Activity (HP) complex on the Ball State University campus. Specific facilities that are either part of the School or are used by the School include classrooms and office areas within the HP complex, activity spaces in the Field Sports Building, Worthen Arena, JoAnn Gora Student Recreation and Wellness Center (SRWC), Lewellen Pool, Ball Gymnasium and Pool, and several outdoor activity spaces. There are seven laboratory facilities that are part of the School: Human Performance Laboratory (HPL), Clinical Exercise Physiology Laboratory, Biomechanics Laboratory, Sport and Exercise Psychology Laboratory, Undergraduate Exercise Science and First Aid Laboratory, Integrative Exercise Physiology Laboratory, and Athletic Training Research and Education Laboratory. The Human Performance, Clinical Exercise Physiology, Biomechanics, and Integrative Exercise Physiology Laboratories function almost exclusively as research facilities, whereas the other laboratories are primarily used for educational/classroom purposes.

We are committed to providing an exceptional educational experience for students, advancing the knowledge base of our disciplines through research, and serving the university, profession, and community. Currently there are nearly 1,000 undergraduate students enrolled in the five undergraduate majors and 70 minors and nearly 145 graduate students enrolled in one of eight graduate programs.

The College of Health building is currently under construction. When it’s completed in 2019, this $62.5 million facility will primarily house academic programs in our College of Health. The 167,000-square-foot building features multiple simulation suites, and exam rooms, as well as an athletics training lab. It will also have clinics for psychological assessments, speech and audiology, nutrition, social work, and wellness. The structure will be designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification, and it will have green roof areas. The new building will help us fill the need for more professionals in health care fields. And it will allow us to do so in an innovative way. We will consolidate most programs in the College of Health to teach our students to work in teams that collaborate across professions. We anticipate this approach will result in better patient outcomes.
