The Wellness Wheel
Halbert L. Dunn, a U.S. doctor, began using the phrase high level wellness in the 1950s, and defined wellness as "an integrated method of functioning which is oriented toward maximizing the potential of which the individual is capable. It requires that the individual maintain a continuum of balance and purposeful direction within the environment where he is functioning." He also stated that: "Wellness is a direction in progress toward an ever-higher potential of functioning." Click on the image for more information!
NCAA CHOICES Grant
The misuse of alcohol by college students is of great concern to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
In an effort to educate students about the risks involved with the misuse of alcohol, the NCAA has, through the support of the NCAA Foundation and Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc., developed CHOICES, a grant program for alcohol education.
Through CHOICES, the NCAA provides funding for NCAA member institutions and conferences for the development, implementation and evaluation of effective alcohol-education and prevention programs on college campuses.
The PLU Lute Fit committee promotes a climate of wellness in which students, staff, and faculty may become more engaged in healthy behaviors. We do this by providing resources and education related to the dimensions of cultural, emotional, intellectual, physical, social, spiritual, and vocational wellness.
LuteFit Strategic Goals
Guided by the Wellness Wheel, has decided to focus for 2013-2014 on: 1) Drugs and the NCAA Choices Grant; 2) Exercise/Fitness for students (and staff/profs) and WAP programs; and 3) Food and Nutrition (especially the Commons).
