The I-MOVE program at Syracuse University includes credit-bearing courses offered through the School of Education’s Department of Exercise Science.
I-MOVE Purpose: To provide a variety of health-related, physical activity/skill acquisition opportunities for the Syracuse University student, campus, and neighboring community. Exercise Science I-MOVE programs endorse education as their central mission along with promoting safe and lifelong participation in health-enhancing physical activity.
I-MOVE: Why the “I”? The “I” in I-MOVE can reflect the INDIVIDUAL Movement experience for health enhancement, enjoyment, and personal expression; the “I” can also portray how an individual can IMPACT and motivate others to move in health-enhancing ways by becoming a physical activity leader, coach, or dancer; and last, through the integration of INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES we can motivate, monitor, and measure health enhancing exercise and movement at the individual or community levels.
