Collection Historical Note

The Department of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation (HPER) began as the Department of Physical Education in 1890. The university had always offered some form of physical education to students but did not establish a department dedicated to physical education until that year. Over the next several years, the department grew and courses in physical education became a required component of student coursework. As a result of President Brown's 1930 reorganization of the university's academic programs into divisions, the department changed its name in 1931 to the Division of Health and Sports Education. To better align itself with its curriculum, the department changed its name again in 1933 to the Division of Health and Physical Education. In 1935, the department split into two sub-groups: men and women. Though some co-ed classes were taught, most courses offered by the department were split between a men's and women's division. Both divisions of the department also had its own division chair and administrative organization, though the men's division chair was usually also the chair of the entire department. The Men's and Women's divisions continued as the university changed its name to Illinois State University at Normal (1964-1967) and Illinois State University (1968-). In 1967, the university established colleges and placed the department with the College of Applied Science and Technology (CAST). The department's divided organizational structure continued until 1973 when the department was renamed the Department of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation (HPER). Though there were specific classes for men, women, and co-ed, the administrative structure was no longer divided between men and women. Dance was added to the department in 1976, thus expanding the official department name to the Department of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (HPERD). Dance was later moved in 1996 to the administration of the Department of Theatre and the department's name was shortened back to HPER. In 2001, HPER was closed and its programs distributed to other departments and schools in CAST.

Biographical Note

Though always part of the curriculum, physical education did not become a department until 1889. Because of changes in social etiquette, academic policies, and course offerings, the department has changed its name through the years: The Division of Health and Sports Education in 1931, the Division of Health and Physical Education in 1933, and the Department of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation (HPER) in 1973. The addition of the Dance program in 1976 lengthened the name to HPERD. The department closed in 2001 and its programs were distributed to other departments in the College of Applied Science and Technology (CAST).
