The Exercise Science faculty are committed to delivering a program that promotes health through physical activity while valuing and examining physical activity through a Christian worldview. 

Our Mission

In September 1914, Seattle Pacific added physical education to its curriculum, advising that “courses consist of classes both in theory and in practice.” The forerunner of today’s Health and Human Performance Department, these new courses established the importance Seattle Pacific University placed on health and fitness education.

Today, HHP faculty are experts and active professional practitioners in their fields. This gives students access to the most up-to-date training and equipment in those disciplines. Dedicated educators, HHP faculty care about their students and — with SPU’s exceptional faculty-to-student ratio — work closely with them to help them succeed.
