INCLUSIVE POLICIES

In addition to providing inclusive facilities, Campus Recreation understands the importance of policies and programs that are welcoming to all participants.

Asserted Gender Policy

Individuals shall be permitted to participate in Campus Recreation programs, facilities, activities, and events in accordance with that personā€™s asserted gender identity.

What does this mean in practice?

  • Showing up for an event, program, facility, or activity is all you have to do to establish your gender identity and participate
  • No questions will be asked, no proof is required, come join us and play!

 

Asserted Gender Intramural Policy

Individuals shall be permitted to participate in Intramural Sports events in accordance with that personā€™s asserted gender identity.

What does this mean in practice?

  • Showing up to play for a men’s, women’s, or coed IM team is all you have to do to establish your gender identity and play in that division.
  • No questions will be asked, no proof is required, come join us and play!

 

Non-Gendered Attire Policy

In an effort to be inclusive of all personal workout attire preferences, Campus Recreation has an open attire policy.

What does this mean in practice?

  • Beyond our facility policies, we do not require gender-specific attire within Campus Recreation Facilities. Participants are encouraged to wear whatever attire honors their workout experience most, including sports bras, muscle tees, loose or tight-fitting clothing, etc.
  • Within the aquatic facility, patrons are asked to wear attire designed specifically for use in the water.

 

Spouse/Partner Membership Policy

In order for a spouse/partner to purchase a membership, theĀ Campus Recreation member and spouse/partner must bring in either a marriage license or civil unionĀ certificate or 3 of the following.

What does this mean in practice?

  • Driverā€™s License with the same address, Joint checking account, Proof of Assignment to Beneficiary Rights, Proof of joint ownership of a residence or motor vehicle, Mutual designation on a will, Irrevocable living trust or Durable property and health care powers of attorney.
  • You can purchase a membership for your partner in-person at the either the SRF or SFC. Both parties must be available to initially set-up the membership, but after that, your partner can gain access to theĀ facilities on their own.

 

Personal Care Assistants

Personal Care Assistants (PCA) are eligible to access Campus Recreation facilities in order to aid someone in their workout. The Personal Care Assistant will be required to sign a Campus Recreation Waiver. PCAs can access the Campus Recreation facilities only during times with the individual needing assistance, they should remain with the individual needing assistance, and can only assist the individual needing help. PCAs can attend various events and programs offered by Campus Recreation to assist those in need.

 

Staff Trainings

We offer a variety of training opportunities to our staff to further our commitment to providing welcoming customer service and programs.

What does this mean in practice?

  • Student and professional staff at Campus Recreation receive training on topics such as Inclusivity and Safe Zone Workshops.
  • We make inclusivity a priority, yet there may be times when someone (either on our own staff or a Rec Center user) may not be fully educated or aware of our policies. We make every effort to assure that you are always welcome within our building and at our programs, but if you have a concern, please let any of the student staff on duty know, or you can contact Member Services at (312) 413-5162.
