Outdoor Adventure

diverse group of students at the beach for a surfing tripUCF Recreation and Wellness Center and Outdoor Adventure aspire to create an environment in which we celebrate the differences we share across the spectrum of human diversity. Diversity is vital to an individual’s holistic development and the social fabric of the university. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment through hiring and developing culturally competent staff members, outreaching to under-served populations and providing facilities and programs that support all members of the UCF community. Our expectation of the RWC community is to embrace an open-minded and respectful attitude toward individual differences.
