The Division of Physical Education believes in providing education founded upon sound theory and application.  This included providing health education, fitness, dance, activity (yoga, team sports, Pilates, fitness, aquatics, cardiovascular fitness, strength training) and athletics courses that our community desire.  All units are an integral part of the institution’s total educational program and the college community.  The mission of Physical Education is to empower all students to sustain regular, lifelong physical activity as a foundation for a healthy, productive and fulfilling life. The department will utilize learning in the cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains in a play or movement exploration setting.
