Dear Alumni and Friends:

Did you know that the School of Education houses one of the university's fastest-growing and most productive departments on the Baylor campus? Over the last four years, the department of Health, Human Performance and Recreation (HHPR) has more than doubled the size of its undergraduate and graduate programs.

Over 500 undergraduate and 120 graduate students pursue the following programs offered by the HHPR department:

Undergraduate Programs

• athletic training
• community health
• exercise physiology (formerly health/fitness studies)
• general studies
• health science studies (pre-med, pre-dental, pre-physical therapy, and other pre-health profession programs)
• physical education
• recreation and leisure services (church recreation and outdoor recreation)

Graduate Programs

• exercise physiology (strength and conditioning emphasis)
• health education
• sport management
• sport pedagogy
• exercise, nutrition, and preventive health (the nation’s only doctoral program in this field)

The HHPR department also serves the wider Baylor community by offering a variety of nonmajor human performance activity and health education courses that meet degree requirements for more than 3,500 Baylor students each semester. In addition to the required content, students in all of these programs acquire critical skills through community-based education and internship programs and/or experiences in the various laboratory facilities:

• exercise and sport nutrition lab
• exercise and biochemical nutrition lab
• athletic training and sports medicine lab
• physical education/recreation lab
• health and wellness lab
• exercise physiology teaching lab

One of the department's newest initiatives, the creation of an Outdoor Adventure Living-Learning Center is highlighted in this issue of the Impact. Visionary leadership by an outstanding faculty, superior academic programs, and significant increases in scholarship and grant funding obtained by the department attracts the highest quality students to the department's programs.
