The College at Brockport has a rich history in the area of Adapted Physical Education. The Institute on Movement Studies and Visual Impairment builds on this rich history and enables The College at Brockport and the Department of Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education (KSSPE) to showcase and develop further its unique and nationally recognized accomplishments in research, educational offerings, and programs in APE and Motor Behavior.
The Institute’s esteemed purpose and record of achievement will help the College secure more external grant and foundation funding for research, offerings, and programs. It will enable Brockport faculty and their visiting colleagues from across the country and abroad to better conduct research, develop curricula, and work directly with children with visual impairment on their motor skill development.
Our mission is to enable Brockport faculty and their visiting colleagues to conduct research, publish scholarly work and develop educational curricula and programming related to motor development, especially for people with visual impairments, blindness, and deafblindness.
Our vision is to achieve national recognition as a leading resource for research on and promotion of physical activity and motor development, especially for people with visual impairments, blindness, and deafblindness.
