With the beginning of the new academic year, similar to other departments, the Athletics Department started their classes of physical education with remote delivery. With this transition, the Athletics Department Director, Samar Moussa, submitted an initiative to the Entrepreneurial Education in Emergency Forum (EEEF) on “The role of a physical education course in spreading health awareness to limit the spread of the Coronavirus.”
Both online and on-campus physical education courses have the objective of getting students moving and exposed to different kinds of physical activity. The department organized walking challenges for the students and encouraged them to walk with their families and neighbors.
This initiative was adopted by the EEEF and will be presented on the regional level in the next stage.
