What is the Board of Recreational Sports?

The Board of Recreational Sports is the primary governing body for all aspects of the student fee funded Department of Recreational Sports. It is the responsibility of the Board to review the operation and use policy for all facilities, the development and implementation of all programs and services, and monitor financial activity of the departments. The Board also represents the university community in long range strategic planning and the request for student fee funding.
