Meet the Faculty

It is the philosophy of the academic and clinical faculty at Manchester University that an entry level program in adapted physical education must prepare a graduate to enter the profession as a teacher who can provide comprehensive services to individuals of all ages and abilities in a safe, effective, and ethical manner. The goal of these services is to develop, maintain, or restore a person's maximum physical function for al lifetime of leisure, recreation, and sport.
