The administrative records of the Department of Physical Education document the creation and development of the department,
including its 1987 reorganization and renaming to the Department of Physical Education Instruction, and its 1994 disestablishment.
The Department of Physical Education was officially established in 1965, an action which formalized the physical education
activities that had already been in operation. The department's mission was to provide instruction that promoted a lifetime
appreciation for quality health and fitness. The opportunity to participate was to be extended to all students regardless
of ability. The department provided physical education instruction, oversaw individual and team sports activities, offered
fitness assessments and guidance to all university community members, and oversaw the maintenance of athletic facilities.
