The mission and goals of the College of Health and Human Performance align with the institutional objectives of Brigham Young University by providing an "environment that increases faith in God and the restored gospel, is intellectually enlarging, is character building, and leads to a life of learning and service" (Merrill J. Bateman, "From Pioneer Roots to a World-Class, Worldwide Institution," 1999 Annual University Conference, p. 8). The college contributes to the total development of students and faculty by "educat[ing] the minds, [bodies,] and spirits of students" (ibid.).
A challenging environment emphasizes the achievement of excellence according to one's aptitudes in the various areas of human development. A foundation for continuous learning prepares individuals to serve their professions effectively, meet personal challenges, care for their families, and serve as responsible citizens.
