Commitment to Inclusion

Wellness and Recreation is committed to fostering innovative and inclusive programs, services and facilities that are accessible for every member of the Wolfpack community. 

To continue our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging we strive to provide resources, transparent communication and collaborate with NC State campus partners to enhance student success.

NC State defines diversity as an inclusive community of people with varied human characteristics, ideas and worldviews whose interactions both benefit and challenge each other to grow while making the community better.

Wellness and Recreation encourages individuals from varied backgrounds and identities to participate in all programs, facilities and services – to promote personal growth and enhance the community. 

  • Equity – Wellness and Recreation recognizes the unique needs of the NC State community and creates opportunities for equal access and success through a variety of programming and facilities to accommodate individual abilities and interests.
  • Inclusion – Wellness and Recreation strives to provide opportunities, spaces and guidelines for all members of the community to feel safe, included and welcome.
  • Belonging – Wellness and Recreation values the community and strives to create an environment where students, faculty, staff and members can interact, grow and engage through programs, facilities and services. 

Wellness and Recreation is open to feedback that supports positive change and is committed to ongoing education and training for professional and student employees. 

We are committed to a welcoming and secure campus environment for all members of the university community.


Wellness and Recreation often receives requests to create spaces limiting access to programs, services and facilities for a specific population (e.g. women’s only fitness classes, faculty and staff only work out times).

Given the nature of the type of services provided, Wellness and Recreation does not provide “only” programs, services or facilities due to unintentional consequences of exclusion. 

Wellness and Recreation has five private fitness studios located on the third floor of the Wellness and Recreation Center. All rooms are open during facility hours and have doors for private use.

Wellness and Recreation is committed to continued partnership with various departments and groups to provide custom programming.

Wellness and Recreation strives to provide opportunities, spaces and guidelines for all members of the community to feel safe, included and welcome.


Accommodations

Wellness and Recreation encourages and supports the participation of individuals with disabilities in all programs and services. To facilitate opportunities for people with and without disabilities to engage in recreational pursuits together, we provide inclusion support services, including, but not limited to, staff support and adaptive equipment.

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, NC State will honor requests for reasonable accommodations made by individuals with disabilities.

Requests can be served more effectively if notice is provided at least 10 days before the event. Direct accommodation requests to:
