As Chair of the Department of Health and Sport Sciences (HSS) I would like to welcome
you to our homepage and to our department. We currently have more than 30 full time
faculty members, complemented by close to 50 adjunct (part-time) faculty members.
Our faculty members are leaders in their respective disciplines, publishing their
research findings in top-tier peer reviewed journals, and receiving national and international
recognition for their work.
Our seven academic disciplines (Dietetics and Clinical Nutrition, Environmental Nutrition, Exercise and Sport Science, Health Promotion, Nutrition Science, Physical Education Teacher Education, and Sport and Leisure Management) are home to approximately 900 undergraduate and graduate students. We strongly encourage
students to go beyond the typical educational requirements and get involved in extracurricular
activities that will help to support their learning and overall development, such
as internships, majors clubs, special projects, and participation in faculty directed
We constantly seek to improve the service that we provide to students and I welcome
all feedback that you might have to help assist us in this goal. If I can personally
be of service to you, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I thank you for your interest in our programs and I wish the best in your educational
Richard J. Bloomer
