Mission Statement of the Athletic Training Program
The Waynesburg University Athletic Training Program (ATP) seeks to prepare Athletic Training Students (ATS) for successful careers by instilling a comprehensive liberal arts education and in-depth study in Athletic Training. The program provides opportunities for students to achieve balance between academic scholarship and the acquisition of skills necessary for careers in athletic training and the health care field. The curriculum design provides opportunities for the development, synthesis, and demonstration of cognitive competency and professional behavior. The curriculum is guided by the Athletic Training Educational Competencies established by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) along with the Christian principles on which the University was founded. The NATA Code of Ethics guides our efforts to provide the means, inspiration, and values that will enable our ATSs to pursue successful, productive, and compassionate lives of service.
