For nearly 75 years, our college has been grounded in a commitment to serve the greater good. While our college’s name has changed over the years, our roots have stayed the same. HHP provides nationally and internationally recognized education and research programs. HHP focuses on helping people protect, maintain and improve their health, fitness and quality of life. We are committed to winning the battle against addiction, improving life for those suffering from neurological, cardiovascular and muscular diseases, and spanning cultural divides through tourism and sport. HHP remains dedicated to advancing the way that we live, work, and play.
Our departments are made up of faculty who support an increasing on-campus and online student enrollment. We now count a total of 78 faculty among our ranks. We have grown to nine disciplines housed in four departments with Tourism, Hospitality and Event Management and Sport Management becoming independent departments this year. Above all, we rely on the support and dedication of our more than 20,000 alumni to maintain this momentum.
In this issue of Performance, we focus on the greater good — sharing stories about path-breaking research, amazing students,
outstanding faculty and alumni. Whether you’re a retired PE teacher or a new alumna entering a medical residency, we hope you enjoy and feel proud of your alma mater and the path we’re on together to enrich our society.
