Message from the HSS Chair

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 close to 40 full time faculty and staff 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 eight academic disciplines (Dietetics and Clinical Nutrition, Environmental Nutrition, Exercise and Sport Science, Healthcare Leadership, Health Promotion, Nutrition Science, Physical Education Teacher Education, and Sport and Leisure Management) are home to approximately 1000 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 research studies.

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

I thank you for your interest in our programs and I wish the best in your educational pursuits.

With regards,

Richard J. Bloomer
