Sports and recreational activities have long been an integral part of the American culture. Likewise, both competitive and leisure sport activities have long played an important role in the life of institutions of higher education in the United States. The benefits derived from participation in such activities are well-recognized and scientifically documented. They range from simple enjoyment and wellness to a heightened sense of satisfaction gained from testing one’s mettle, skill and ability in a highly competitive arena. Intramural and extramural sports also provide opportunities to enhance and support a larger sense of community within the institution.

It is important to recognize that sports programming needs to be as diverse as the people it is designed to serve; consequently, the overall Athletics and Campus Recreation program is designed across a broad continuum, beginning with basic instructional programs and incorporating recreational activities, intramural sports programs, club sports programs and, finally, intercollegiate athletic programs for the highly-skilled student athlete.

The underlying philosophy of each program along the continuum is essentially the same: to fully and effectively accommodate the needs and interests of the student body, the University and the larger community in which it resides. Consistent with the University’s mission, campus recreation and athletic programs will be educationally based, focused primarily on the needs and interests of the participants, and shall be fiscally responsible.

Athletics [top]

Intercollegiate athletics at CSUCI supports the University mission by providing comprehensive co-curricular programming through competitive sports. Furthermore, athletics at CSUCI will be designed and maintained to be:

  • Educationally based
  • Ethically sound
  • Fiscally responsible
  • Gender equitable
  • Imbued with the values of sportsmanship and fair play

Recognizing that competitive sports play a valuable role in the life of an educational institution, as well as in the life of the community at large, athletics at CSUCI will be designed and maintained to reflect its role as a campus and community service. However, it should be noted that the primary focus of athletics will always be student-athlete based.

Campus Recreation [top]

Through its programs and services, Campus Recreation assists students in creating and maintaining healthy lifestyles by balancing the demands of academic pursuits with the benefits of “wellness” through physical fitness, competition and recreation. Campus Recreation provides programming and activities in the following eight categories: Intramural Sports, Informal Recreation, Sports Clubs, Instructional Programs, Health and Fitness, Waterfront, Outdoor Adventures and Special Events. Campus Recreation programs are created using the University’s “Dimensions of Development,” which include: Values & Integrity, Expression, Health, Intellectual, Intra/Interpersonal, Citizenship, Creativity, Cultural, and Life & Career Planning.

Meningococcal vaccine is not required, however each incoming freshman who will reside in on-campus housing will be required to return a form to the Student Health and Counseling Center verifying that he or she has received information about meningococcal disease and the availability of a vaccine to prevent one from contracting the disease, and indicating whether or not he or she has chosen to receive the vaccination. The form is available at the Student Health and Counseling Center or online through the CSUCI website. Student Health Services provides the meningococcal vaccine for an additional fee.
