Case Western Reserve Physical Education
The physical education program at CWRU is an integral part of life on campus as it provides many students with a weekly opportunity to excercise and socialize built right into their busy schedules. Our coaches and department heads are very proud that the university continues to find physical education important enough to make it a requirement for graduation.
Physical activity should be an important part of everyone's life. The Physical Education Department is committed to providing a comprehensive program to promote health and wellness through the acquisition of skills and knowledge that can be incorporated into a holistic lifestyle.
All activities are coeducational and are taught by professional physical education faculty members.
