All SBU students, faculty and staff are eligible for participation with a Campus Recreation
Membership. If you do not know enough people to form a complete team, come to the
Department of Campus Recreation for more information and/or you can attend the Manager's
Meeting of that sport and find a team as a free agent at the meeting. Individuals
as well as teams are encouraged to participate in intramurals. Teams are usually formed
from residence hall floors, Greek organizations, student organizations, and often
simply groups of friends.
Recognition of Inclusivity
Objective: Campus Recreation is committed to enhancing diversity through the inclusion of individuals,
regardless of their age, ideas, perspectives, disability, ethnicity, gender identity,
national origin, race, religious and spiritual beliefs, sex, sexual orientation, and
socioeconomic and geographic background.
The University’s commitment to diversity is longstanding and reflects the essential
function of a diverse community and plays in the furtherance of its role and mission
as an equal opportunity institution. Given the historic and legal discrimination that
has existed in American society, particular emphasis needs to be placed on the inclusion
of individuals who are members of groups that have been excluded such as, racial/ethnic,
sexual orientation, minorities, women in non-traditional areas, and persons with disabilities.
Campus Recreation strives to recognize, affirm, and value its members for their role
in a global community with greater understanding of their own and other cultures and
Goal: Employees and Hiring
We will employ, develop and retain a student body in keeping with the mission of the
University to provide access and opportunity to individuals from all segments of society
and will create an effective work environment that benefits all members of the campus
community. We will do so by collaborating with the appropriate people to develop responsive,
sensitive strategies toward co-curricular advising with particular attention to the
cultural and identity-related needs of students. Campus Recreation will continue to
shape and maintain an environment designed to welcome, encourage, and embrace differences.
