Campus Recreation supports the The Division of Student Affairs & University Events Inclusion Statement: ...Diversity makes us stronger and a community that values equity and inclusion enhances the educational experience. By creating a safe environment for expression, exploration and growth we are preparing students and staff to be productive members of a diverse society - our people are our greatest asset."
We are committed to cultivating a just community and sustaining an inclusive campus culture. We embrace diversity in its broadest forms and believe academic excellence and diversity are inseparable.

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 contact Peter_Murray@uml.edu.
If you have any suggestions or comments on how our staff, programs or facilities could be improved or more inclusive, feel free to fill out our anonymous online suggestion form to provide your feedback. If you would like a Campus Recreation Staff member to follow up with you, simply fill out your contact information listed on the form.
To locate the gender-inclusive restrooms on campus look at our campus maps (pdf) and find the gender-neutral restroom symbols located on each facility that has an inclusive restroom.
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.
