Department of Physical Education
These are fun times for the Health and Physical Education department at MES KALLADI College. The excitement is palpable as the new Indoor Stadium comes closer to being a reality with every day. The new facility (comprising gym, workout facility, offices and yoga hall and Table Tennis court) will be vital to co-curricular and sports teams’ success. However, the biggest impact is sure to be felt by students in HPE classes and the dedicated teachers who teach in the spaces.
For students taking part in the Sports and other activities, the changes will be significant. No longer will there be sharing of gyms and courts, as there will be enough for each student to have its own space. Up-to-date cardio equipment in the workout facility will provide ample opportunity to train and mentor other students during fitness units.
In keeping with the University’s mission, the Department of Physical Education and Leadership is dedicated to and focused on the development of the whole student: physical, mental, and intellectual. Programs within the department are interdisciplinary by nature and combine the fields of education and social sciences. The department is dedicated to providing a high quality physical education program and career preparation with the idea of excellent teaching and coaching being the central to our mission. Our students teach in a variety of settings, including colleges, sports arenas, fitness centers, community/public health organizations, physical therapy clinics, and outdoor recreation endeavors.
Physical education provides academic programs in health, physical education, outdoor recreation and pre-physical therapy. Our vision for the future includes adding a minor in heath/wellness promotion, continuing to grow our outdoor adventure and leadership program in coaching, adult fitness, and physical education. We aim to provide exemplary programs in these areas.
