The mission of the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education is to “develop, advance and disseminate knowledge about physical activity, health and their interactions through education, research, leadership and the provision of opportunity.” We deliver this mission by creating synergies among the outstanding research, education and broad spectrum of co-curricular physical activity and sport programs that all reside within the Faculty.
The award-winning Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport embodies this mission, integrating research, training, treatment and competition in one, state-of-the-art building serving all University of Toronto students and community members. As a part of the University’s Boundless campaign, the $58 million Goldring Centre campaign is the fourth and final phase of an unprecedented $98 million renewal of athletic facilities on the St. George campus and is meeting a crucial need for increased physical activity spaces – it is the Faculty’s first new athletic and academic facility on the downtown campus since 1979.
The Goldring Centre has the capacity to renew Ontario’s ability to support its high performance athletes with all the resources required for a high level training program under one roof. By creating synergies between sports science research, sports medicine, strength and conditioning and competition, the Goldring Centre is one of the most sophisticated sport and physical activity facilities in Canada.
