Inclusive Recreation

UW Recreation will partner with UW-affiliated groups or departments to bring adaptive, inclusive, and unified recreational opportunities to campus. This may involve such programming as Special Olympics College, Adaptive Yoga, LGBTQ programming, and/or other adaptive programs in an effort to increase involvement with underrepresented populations on campus and promote inclusion. This partnership will include use of UW Recreation facilities, when available, and access for the general public, on a limited basis and as needed for the program. The program concept is being created as a pilot to create enhanced collaboration and foster an inviting recreational experience for all.


  • UW Recreation is happy to announce that Special Olympics College at UW will be our first pilot program. We have partnered with this Registered Student Organization (RSO)┬áto bring Unified Sports play to campus, beginning in Spring Quarter 2016, and they currently use IMA facilities each quarter for Unified Sports practice, on an ongoing basis.
  • UW Recreation has also partnered to provide various field/gym days for Challenge 4 Charity, a Registered Student Organization (RSO) comprised of Foster MBA students (who compete with MBA students from nine other West Coast business schools) who support and raise funds for Special Olympics, Boys and Girls Clubs, and other family-related local charities.
