On 11/11/2019, the HPERC department voted unanimously to change the department name to Department of Kinesiology. Meeting minutes are attached.
This is actually the second effort to change our department name. On 10/9/2017, the department voted unanimously to change our name to Kinesiology, however, due to other curriculum development projects the department did not follow-up at that time with curricular action to change the name. Since new faculty/staff have joined our department since then, we decided to hold another vote and the department demonstrated continued and unanimous support for the change.
