Research is an important and vital activity within the UBC School of Kinesiology
Each of the School’s graduate faculty members has a sustained record of research published in scholarly journals with much of this research supported through competition for research grants. Graduate faculty members are experienced in the supervision of theses and dissertations at both the Master and Doctoral degree levels and they are often sought after to act as external examiners and committee members in other faculties here and elsewhere. Associate status within other UBC faculties, departments, and research institutes (e.g., Science, Rehabilitation Sciences, Psychology, ICORD, and Brain Research Center) is not uncommon and further promotes interdisciplinary activity. Faculty members also have a number of research collaborations with other North American and international universities.
