WeREC Logo. Respect. Empower. Care

Campus Recreation should be a space for everyone, and it takes the entire community to help achieve that goal. So how do #WeREC? We REC by Respecting each other’s identities and boundaries, Empowering ourselves and our friends to always contribute positively to this community, and by always Caring about the health and well being of every Ram.

Inclusive Rec

Our department is dedicated to providing inclusive spaces and programs to our diverse campus community so that every single person feels welcome, no matter their background. We have a variety of inclusive facilities such as all gender restrooms and changing rooms, nursing parent spaces, adaptive equipment, and more. Our inclusive policies include participation in IM Sports and facilities based on a person’s gender identity, non-gendered attire policies, and more. We also try to accommodate individuals in all areas of our department, so if you’re interested in joining a class, trip, course, or event and are worried about accommodations, just reach out to the respective professional staff contact to discuss your options.

Gym-Timidation is Real
