To promote each participants learning experience by engaging the university community in healthy lifestyles through sport, fitness and recreational opportunities.
The programs offered by the Department are facilitated through three indoor intramural facilities, one multi-purpose arena, 27 acres of outdoor recreational field space, an off-site sailing center and shared campus facilities including tennis courts, golf courses, and an ice arena among others. The program specific functions include informal or drop-in recreation at any of these facilities; structured competitive intramural sports; programs dedicated for health, wellness and fitness; sport club opportunities; non-credit instruction for acquiring new skills; and unique opportunities and programs targeted for persons with disabilities. The staff responsible for administering these programs include ten administrative, four support and approximately 450 student employees. We serve our University students, faculty-staff, retirees and alumni, with limited opportunities for the general public.
