Story Abstract

Money will assist with National Wellness Institute accreditation application.

Story

The National Wellness Institute recently awarded Southern Adventist University's School of Physical Education, Health, and Wellness the first ever Academic Program Accreditation Grant, adding to the school’s growing list of honors.

The National Wellness institute (NWI) is the accrediting body for employee wellness degrees and the standard for excellence in the professional wellness world, said Phil Garver, dean of the School of Physical Education, Health, and Wellness. The $1,000 grant will assist his team with the cost of applying for accreditation for its undergraduate wellness degree from the NWI. Accreditation by the NWI gives graduates a leg up when applying for a job in the wellness field.

The NWI called Garver personally and informed him of the recently developed grant, inviting Southern to apply. The school received the grant because of its exceptional Corporate and Community Wellness Management program. Along with Southern, Rowan University in Glassboro, N.J. was also a grant recipient.

“We are so pleased we are able to assist these high-quality institutions in applying for academic program accreditation,” said John Munson, NWI senior consultant.

This is not the first time the department has received recognition from the NWI. In July, the school received the Distinguished Academic Program Award, which recognizes outstanding academic health promotion programs that continually produce top-quality graduates.

“I think the school is deserving. We’ve had one of the best programs in the nation for many years,” Garver said. "I feel honored."
