Meet Campus Recreation

Princeton University Campus Recreation Mission Statement (May, 2010)

Princeton University Campus Recreation seeks to improve the health and well-being of the University community through the core principles of fitness and wellness, healthy competition, lifelong skill development, and community-building. These guiding principles aim to improve the quality of life on campus and strengthen the ties between and among undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty and staff. Campus Recreation provides educational and leadership opportunities through instructional programs, intramural activities, and sport club teams for diverse levels of skill and ability. As the focal point of recreation, Dillon Gymnasium provides a full range of facilities for participation in personal fitness and wellness, and informal recreation at the crossroads of the Princeton campus.

In response to an external review of the Campus Recreation Program conducted in March, 2005 and suggestions offered at a Campus Recreation Brainstorm Session held March, 2008, Princeton University Campus Recreation is establishing an Ad Hoc Committee on Campus Recreation. 

The Ad Hoc Committee on Campus Recreation will act in an advisory role on program issues/development and policy interpretation.  The Ad Hoc Committee on Campus Recreation will serve in a non-binding, advisory capacity to the Associate Director of Athletics for Campus Recreation.
