About Us

The Human Kinetics Graduate Students’ Association (HKGSA) represents all graduate students in the School of Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa.


The mission of the HKGSA is to represent, promote and defend the interests of all full-time and part-time graduate students from the School of Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa.


The HKGSA is a student-run organization consisting of graduate students from a diverse range of disciplines within the School of Human Kinetics. We are committed to assisting Human Kinetics graduate students with both academic and non-academic matters. Our goal is work towards promoting interactions amongst the Human Kinetics graduate students and professors through a variety of academic, social and sporting activities throughout the year.

The HKGSA and its members are dedicated to making your graduate student experience the best that it can be at uOttawa. New members are always welcome!


Our vision is to create a positive and engaging experience for all graduate students within the School of Human Kinetics. We wish to foster an inclusive and supportive community by bringing together graduate students from across all disciplines in the School of Human Kinetics.

This year we have worked hard on improving our communications, organizing more events, and providing new resources (including this website) which will help graduate students stay informed and up-to-date on things that are happening within the HK community.
