Institute of Movement Studies for Individuals with Visual Impairments
SUNY Brockport has a rich history in the area of Adapted Physical Education. The Institute of Movement Studies and Visual Impairment (IMSVI) builds on this rich history and enables the University and the Department of Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education to showcase and develop further its unique and nationally recognized accomplishments in research, educational offerings, and programs in Adapted Physical Education and Motor Behavior.
The Institute’s esteemed purpose and record of achievement will help the University 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.
