Student Development with Campus Recreation & Wellness
Student Development is at the core of everything the Campus Recreation & Wellness Department
does. Our mission is to provide quality programs, services, and facilities that enhance
each individual’s opportunity for leisure, recreation, fitness, and wellness in relation
to his or her overall personal development. We cannot carry this mission out, without
developing our student workers and participants into excellent leaders ready to impact
the world in which they live.
Employee of the Month Program
Do you see one of our department's student employees do something exceptional? This
is your shot to nominate one of our student employees. Nominate an outstanding student employee.
The SEB's goal is to unify the departments within Campus Rec & Wellness by providing
professional development resources, leadership opportunites through student-led activities,
and acting as a voice for the student employees.
Semesterly Student Development Trainings
Each semester we provide multiple trainings for our student employees. Training topics
range from customer service, time managements, diversity, equity and inclusion, risk
management, leadership skills, and transferable skills for the their future careers.
Professional Development Opportunities
Campus Rec & Wellness also provides our students with opportunitites for development
away from WKU. Members of our staff have had the opportunitiy to attend the NIRSA
Annual Conference, as well as state and regional workshops. They have also attended
conferences with multiple other associations such as AORE and ACHA. We have also provided
support for certifications to further their careers such as CPO (certified pool operator),
ACE & ACSM personal training certifications, and HIV Tester training.
