About Us

Our Mission

The Department of Campus Recreation offers an array of programs and services that foster wellness and positive socialization for the University Community.

As such, we will continually endeavor to support the learning mission of Florida A&M University by providing a comprehensive and innovative program of recreational, leisure and fitness activities; encouraging student participation and the development of leadership skills; meeting the needs of a multi-cultural institution and fostering the spirit of teamwork, holistic living, and good sportsmanship.

The Department further engages to adopt and exhibit an orientation of making exemplary service and attention to the needs of the University paramount in every facet of its administration.

Our Purpose: The FAMU Student

The FAMU Student is:

  • The most important person on campus. Without students, there would be no need for the institution
  • Not a cold enrollment statistic, but a flesh and blood human being with feelings and emotions like our own
  • Not someone to be tolerated so that we can do our thing - they ARE our thing
  • Not dependent on us. Rather, we are dependent on them; and not an interruption of our work, but the purpose of it
