Kinesiology and Applied Health is "Standout Program" in MacLean's: University Rankings 2016: Primarily Undergraduate

Wed. Oct. 26, 2016

The annual ranking juggernaut noted UWinnipeg's campus expansion, including the Axworthy Health and RecPlex: "The university has embarked on $217 million worth of expansions and renovations, which are fuelling an important renewal at the core of Manitoba’s capital. The campus has been the scene of rapid and ambitious projects. The ultra-modern Buhler Centre houses the Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, among other things, and a science and environment building opened recently. The U of W marked the latest phase in its decade-long campus renaissance with the completion of the [Axworthy] Health & RecPlex. Opened in fall 2014, it features a large multi-use artificial turf field, rubberized sprint tract, yoga-dance studio and community gym with climbing wall."

Our Academic Kinesiology and Applied Health department was featured:  "The program makes use of new facilities and gives students experience in the classroom, lab, on the field and in the community. Students work with faculty on research projects, including one on brain injury in sports through the Heads Up Concussion Institute."   Other Standout Programs: Education and Indigenous Studies and Governance.
