Journal of Outdoor Recreation, Education, and Leadership, v9 n1 p3-9 2017
This paper illustrates the relevance of campus recreation to higher education through a University of Utah case study. Offering Utah's Experiential Learning and Outdoor Recreation Education (U-EXPLORE) program as our exemplar, we advance four lines of thought. First, we establish the relationship between an active body and an active mind. Second, we describe the manifestation of this relationship through U-EXPLORE. Third, we discuss the practical benefits of offering campus recreation programs that include a strong educational focus. Fourth, we conclude by emphasizing why recreation in particular is an ideal context for nurturing pastimes that unite mind and body and promote lifelong human growth and development.
