Campus Recreation Advisory Board (CRAB)



Anticipating the continuing interest of the University of Maryland community in policies, procedures, and fees which impact campus recreation programs and facilities, a Campus Recreation Advisory Board (CRAB) is created to provide advice and recommendations to the Vice President for Student Affairs on all issues related to these subjects.

The Vice President's Office, and University Recreation & Wellness, recognizes the need for ongoing input, the value an advisory board can play in the overall quality of University Recreation & Wellness programs and services.

The specific responsibilities of the CRAB:

  • Serve as a forum for the discussion of campus recreation related ideas, issues, and concerns of interest to the Advisory Board members, or which are brought to the Board's attention by members of the campus community or the staff of University Recreation & Wellness.

  • Review and comment upon long-range facility and program goals established by University Recreation & Wellness.

  • Periodically review and suggest amendments/changes to the policies formulated to guide the orderly management of campus recreation programs and services.

  • Recommend procedures designed to ensure the timely communication of relevant recreation information to the campus community (specifically including the University Senate, SGA, and the Alumni Association).

  • Annually review user demand for existing recreation facilities, programs, and services, and survey data gathered by University Recreation & Wellness to identify general concerns, forecast trends, and anticipate future program requirements.

  • Assess the impact this information or other campus developments may have on the recreation program and recommend actions which will minimize potential adverse impacts or promote enhanced recreation opportunities.

  • Annually review and comment upon the fee structure for recreational programs and facilities and adjustments proposed by University Recreation & Wellness.
