Mission Statement

The Health and Kinesiology department at Purdue University serves our students, faculty and staff by creating a safe and welcoming atmosphere that fosters diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging and success for each individual. The department is committed to closing the diversity, equity and inclusion gap as we strive for intellectual humility*.



*Intellectual humility is a mindset that guides our intellectual conduct. In particular, it involves recognizing and owning our intellectual limitations in the service of pursuing deeper knowledge, truth, and understanding. Such a mindset appears to be valuable in many domains of life — from education to interreligious dialogue to public discourse. It promises to help us avoid headstrong decisions and erroneous opinions, and allows us to engage more constructively with our fellow citizens. John Templeton Foundation
