Campus Recreation is dedicated to providing inclusive services, programs, and facilities to all persons, and welcomes participants and visitors reflective of all characteristics including age, culture, different ideas and perspectives, disability, ethnicity, familial status, gender identity and expression, geographical background, marital status, national origin, race, religious and spiritual beliefs, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and veteran status.
Campus Recreation's Inclusivity Committee is comprised of students and professional staff members. The Committee meets monthly to make recommendations and changes to the department, participate in trainings and education, and work collaboratively on improving the inclusive environment for all CSU community members. Sub-committees also work on special projects throughout the year, such as the introduction of new adaptive equipment, EDI trainings, review of hiring practices, departmental assessments, and more. Do you have a suggestion for the Inclusivity Committee? We welcome you to contact our Chair, Erin Patchett, at (970) 491-0989.
Campus Recreation has a number of policies in place to ensure that all our visitors and participants experience a safe, secure, and welcoming environment. To read more about these policies, please click here.
The Student Recreation Center was renovated in 2010 with a commitment to providing safe, welcoming spaces for all participants. All gender restrooms, all gender changing rooms, ADA access, and multiple workout areas designed to accommodate various skill, ability, and individual comfort levels were incorporated into the facility design. Read more about them and download a map of these areas here.
In order to serve Rams of all backgrounds, our programs, events, and activities that are adaptive now feature the Adaptive Activity icon to indicate that accommodations are possible. The icon is featured on all printed schedules and marketing and indicates that individuals looking for specific accommodations for a disability (mental, emotional, physical, learning), reach out to the staff listed. Each individual has different needs and we are excited to have a conversation with you to see how we can best serve your needs so that you, too, can be a Rec'ing Ram!
Campus Recreation is proud to join the Division of Student Affairs in promoting the No Place 4 H8 campaign. Our department is dedicated to providing environments for all CSU campus community members to come play, recreate, and connect over a shared love of sport, health, wellness, and recreation. We celebrate and affirm all identities and will continue to work hard to ensure that our facilities, programs, and services are a safe and welcoming space for all.
Campus Recreation is proud to support the You Can Play Project, which aims to celebrate and welcome all recreation and sports participants regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, or expression.
