We hold central the belief that well-being applies to families, groups, individuals, organizations, and communities.

The Departments of Counseling, Food Systems, Nutrition, and Kinesiology, and Human Development and Community Health are a group of dedicated faculty and staff whose diverse interests focus on well-being from early childhood through gifted performers and on to mature adults; by teaching, research, or service programs; in the public and private sectors.
