Research on Exercise and Wellness Colloquium Series Features Psychology Assistant Professor, Dr. Austin Baldwin
Talk Abstract: Regular exercise affords many positive effects on health, longevity, and well-being. Despite its many benefits, the majority of adults in the United States do not engage in sufficient levels of regular exercise, and most people who initiate a routine of regular exercise fail to maintain it over time. One intriguing explanation for the widespread lack of regular exercise is that many people experience exercise to be affectively unpleasant, and as a result are less likely to engage in it regularly. In this talk, I will discuss findings across various studies we have conducted that focus on understanding the affective factors that are relevant to exercise and how they might be targeted for intervention.

At a February meeting, board members took a preliminary vote to modify those curriculum standards, keeping in language that would require students to challenge evolutionary science. Republican board member Barbara Cargill, who led the charge to keep in the controversial language, has said requiring students to "evaluate" certain biological processes is necessary for thorough biology instruction. Critics say keeping the word "evaluate" in those standards casts doubt on evolution in a way that could open the door to teaching creationism.
