Cardinal, Bradley J.
An overview of The Body Shop wellness program at Eastern Washington University provides information on enrollment figures, demographic data, physiological improvements, and the results of a survey of participants' attitudes toward and perceptions of the program. The Body Shop serves the university as a fitness center and also as a wellness resource center and community outreach program. Following the overview is a proposal to the administration of the University for the establishment of the Northwest Wellness Institute. The administrative model is outlined and a mission statement describes the six dimensions of wellness upon which the program is based: (1) intellectual; (2) physical; (3) emotional; (4) social; (5) occupational; and (6) spiritual. Appendices provide further information on selected features and benefits of the program. A bibliography is included. (JD)
