Faculty

You can follow in their footsteps

For Applied Health and Fitness (AHF) faculty, the path to the front of the university class was paved with a variety of real-world educational experiences. What they learned while teaching health and wellness and physical education in the public school system, developing health promotion and wellness programs, and providing care in outpatient orthopedic clinics will benefit you as you anticipate the workday world of wellness and fitness.

Balancing their professional, civic and spiritual lives, AHF faculty contribute to their professional organizations, give back as community volunteers and are active in their church communities.
