The Department of Physical Education was formed in the mid-1960s with the purpose of
providing instruction to students wanting to obtain a lifetime appreciation for quality
health and fitness. The department offered programs in four general areas: conditioning,
aquatics, individual sports, and team sports. In addition, the department served the
general university community by offering fitness assessment and guidance programs to
faculty and staff. Members of the department coached intercollegiate teams or assisted in
running the recreational programs for clubs and intramural athletics.
