Recreation Mission

To serve the community in a way that is inclusive and healthy through recreational, cultural, social, and lifelong learning opportunities.

Vision for Recreation

Create a vitally connected community and quality of life through people and programs. Build bridges across differences both internal and external to the campus. Enhance the student experience through personal enrichment, learning, employment, and/or revenue streams to support programs and activities.
