University Recreation fosters personal development, enhances academic productivity, and enriches the quality of life for a diverse university community through excellence in programs, services, and facilities. We believe there is a relationship between physical activity and student academic achievement and that research is the key to continuous improvement.
Physical activity is linked to numerous psychological, physiological, and physical health benefits. In addition to the direction and leadership of the UREC Board, University Recreation looks at participation data and its correlation with grade point average for over 10 years (most recent). We are committed to our mission, vision, values and goals and the strategic plan of Washington State University.
