Wellness programs have become increasingly important in colleges and universities. This is a result of the development of the "whole" student concept that stresses: intellectual development: moral and spiritual development: development of the relationship between college students and faculty; and the relationship with people outside the academic community. Today, college student personnel have realized the importance of adding the physical well-being to this whole student concept. Wellness programs offer the college student the opportunity to improve their physical and mental capabilities. The University of Northern Iowa, along with other higher educational institutions, has developed wellness programs to help students realize their potential in all of the facets mentioned.
