About the author (1998)

Gwen Robbins recently retired as the Dean of the College of Applied Sciences and Technology at Ball State University. She held academic rank in the School of Physical Education, Sport and Exercise Science. Robbins earned her MA (physical education/biology) from Ball State University and an additional 45 hours in the area of Gerontology. She earned her BS (physical education/health/biology) from Indiana State University. Robbins was instrumental in the development of the nationally recognized fitness/wellness requirement at Ball State. She has given many national presentations and published several articles and book chapters about Ball State's fitness/wellness program and assessment of this program. Robbins developed the 500-Yard Water Run, a cardiorespiratory endurance fitness test for non-swimming water exercisers, and the AquaCircuit, a pool circuit-training program. She has received honor awards from the Aquatic Council of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance and the Indiana Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance. Robbins's current research and in-demand presentations focus on the lifestyle changes of college students and university wellness course format and assessment.
