Welcome from the HPLS Chair


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Human Performance and Leisure Studies at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. The department has been nationally recognized as the number one producer of minorities with Bachelor of Science degrees in Sport Science and Fitness Management (SSFM). Currently, the department of HPLS enrolls over 500 undergraduate students, with SSFM program majors in Pre-Physical Therapy, Business Administration, and Leisure Studies. Thus, we are actively contributing to the supply and demand needs of the Sports Management profession via the professional preparation of our SSFM students.

Given the caliber of our faculty, students will glean a great deal of information, while simultaneously enjoying university, school, and departmental interactions. Students are encouraged to meet with the faculty, staff, and other students to garner the support needed for academic and social success.  

I sincerely thank each of you for your choice in attending North Carolina A&T State University and even more so for choosing Sport Science and Fitness Management as your educational discipline. To that end, I look forward to continuing to assist you as you matriculate through the department. Again, welcome and enjoy your time here in Aggie Land!
