The mission of the Department of Human Performance and Sport Studies at Idaho State University is to provide students with the intellectual and physical skills necessary to maximize their potential.
The study of physical education encourages students to respect human dignity, to be critical thinkers, and to be effective communicators. It provides an opportunity for the individual to make decisions regarding lifelong and health choices enhancing self-direction and self-esteem. Physical education develops both the mental and physical discipline to provide opportunities for mental, social, emotional, spiritual, and personal development while interacting in a university environment.
The Idaho State University Department of Human Performance and Sport Studies is committed to providing an academic program in which men and women can discover, experience, and reflect upon the study of movement.
