As a central part of a premier teaching university, the School provides the knowledge, skills, and experiences for a person to pursue a life-long commitment to quality teaching and/or wellness. We envision graduates who enjoy what they are doing, are positive role models in all senses, and who continually reflect on their personal and professional roles and performance.


At the undergraduate level we seek to provide knowledge, skills, and attitudes that assist graduates to maintain a healthy life style, seek employment in the wellness professions and/or license graduates to teach in Tennessee. At the graduate level we seek to provide an innovative approach to meet the needs of today’s teachers and members of the wellness professions. To build on a student’s academic knowledge and assist them to successfully apply knowledge into their professional context. To assist graduates to effectively blend theory, research and practice in their workplace.
