The University of Windsor and its Faculty of Human Kinetics are seeking a Dean.

The Faculty of Human Kinetics comprises two Departments – Kinesiology, and Athletics and Recreational Services. This is an exciting time to be a part of Human Kinetics at Windsor. The Faculty – a vibrant and innovative scholarly environment founded upon teaching, coaching, research and community service in the areas of human physical activity – is poised to move forward with confidence and optimism based on healthy enrolment numbers, new facilities for teaching, research and recreation, and a very dynamic and productive cohort of faculty and staff. For all the details about Kinesiology, and Athletics and Recreational Service, please go to

The last decade has brought considerable growth to the University of Windsor. Enrolment, which now stands at 16,000 students, engaged in 140 programs offered by nine Faculties. To support these students, the University has nearly 600 faculty and over 1,200 staff. Thinking forward… Taking action – the University’s new Strategic Plan – is now in place, and the most ambitious capital expansion since 1963 is underway.

The Dean of Human Kinetics is the Faculty’s chief academic and administrative officer. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in Kinesiology or a related discipline; a demonstrated understanding and appreciation of the role of athletics and recreational services within an academic environment; sound leadership and management skills; and a record of administrative experience in an academic setting.

The University of Windsor invites you to apply to its welcoming community and to self-identify as a member of one of these groups.
