Inclusive Campus Recreation Team
The Inclusive Campus Rec Team was created in the fall of 2015 with the purpose of helping Campus Recreation take steps towards creating a truly inclusive culture throughout our programs and services that impact students, faculty, staff and our patrons. This team is made up of several Campus Recreation student employees from our different program areas as well as Campus Recreation professional staff.
The Inclusive Campus Rec Team will go through continual training each semester focusing on education, celebration of various cultures and identities, and how we can create positive change in our department. The student employees who are on our team receive more in-depth training and then take that knowledge and impart to the rest of our student staff and be the catalyst for change within our programs and services.
These inclusion trainings are in collaboration with the Office of Multicultural Affairs and each of our students who participate are also required to go through the Diversity Peer Educator Program. For more information on this team, please email: Peter_Murray@uml.edu.

How to Report Incidents
UMass Lowell takes the safety and well-being of our campus community seriously. If you, a friend or colleague are a victim of sexual harassment, sexual violence, violence of any type, harassment, bullying, or discrimination you should report this to the appropriate department for action. Your first step should always be making sure you are safe from harm; then if you need it, you should seek and receive medical assistance.
To file a formal complaint:
Clara Orlando, Director of Equal Opportunity & Outreach
