Dwindling state funding and emerging performance-based funding models makes demonstrating the value of campus recreation a top priority. This presentation will describe achievable ways to articulate your value, collaborate, and share research results describing relationships between engagement in campus recreation, student retention, and student success.

  • Describe at least two ways to identify and connect with students at risk of dropping out of school.
