Mission Statement

The mission of the Gardner-Webb University athletic training program (ATP) is to provide the highest quality education that is grounded in a Christian set of values to each and every athletic training student regardless of race, age, or gender through quality instruction and hands-on clinical experiences. Each athletic training student (ATS) will be a well-educated critical thinker and actively engaged in the prevention, recognition and evaluation, management/treatment and disposition, rehabilitation, organization and administration, and education and counseling for injuries occurring to athletes and physically active individuals. Upon meeting all graduation requirements and passing the Board of Certification (BOC) examination, ATSs will find themselves prepared for an entry-level position within the profession of athletic training.
