DUKE RECREATION & PHYSICAL EDUCATION

SNAPSH T 2018–2019 ANNUAL REPORT


“Everyone is so friendly here. Part of the reason I chose Duke initially is because I loved the atmosphere when I first toured here and I loved the community. You can definitely feel that Duke community in Duke Aquatics and Duke Rec altogether as a whole. It’s like one big family and I just really love that part of working here.”

— Olivia, Undergraduate Student

OUR TEAM 26


The mission of Duke Recreation & Physical Education is to provide exceptional and diverse opportunities that promote healthy, active lifestyles in a safe, inclusive environment. INTEGRITY • TEAMWORK • COMMUNICATION • HEALTHY LIFESTYLE • FUN • SAFETY • INCLUSIVENESS

03


We believe that physical activity and movement coupled with an enlightened mindset around culture and identity is the best prescription for campus wellness. Duke Recreation and Physical Education is excited to be positioned as a major contributor to the well-being of the entire campus community. It has been another successful year for us principally because of the opportunity to engage with YOU, our valued members, supporters, and sponsors. With the addition of a functional fitness space, recreation via virtual reality, and the implementation of Cytilife smart visibility technology enabling members to see utilization of cardio equipment in real time, Duke Recreation and Physical Education continues to innovate even as facilities age. Through collaborations with key campus stakeholders, being the largest student employer, making preparations for Duke Kunshan University students including traveling to China to support efforts there, and helping underserved staff make mind-body connections to productivity, Duke Recreation and Physical Education is integral to the Duke experience. We are grateful for the opportunity to support our members in their pursuit of wellbeing. With ever increasing numbers, we are indeed one of the best investments of time, energy and resources one can make at Duke. Join the movement as we help to realize a truly Healthy Duke!

Executive Director, Recreation & Physical Education

“I think joining the (club) rowing team has really taught me that it’s important to be a part of something larger than yourself and it’s important to commit to other people. It has also given me some of the best friendships I’ve ever had.” — Ricardo, Undergraduate Student

“While the facilities at Duke Rec & P.E. meet the highest standards, it is really the skilled and dedicated staff that set this department apart. Whether at the climbing wall, in the weight room, or the pool, expert coaching and advice are always available, and the prevailing atmosphere cannot fail to keep motivation high.”

— Dr. Peter Klopfer, Faculty Member


OUR COMMITMENT TO HEALTH & WELLNESS Duke Recreation & Physical Education is proud to offer a wide range of programs and services that encourage healthy lifestyles through experiential learning and fun. Each year, more than 13,000 members of the Duke community—from undergraduate and graduate students to faculty, staff, and alumni—participate in one or more activities or academic courses showcased throughout this snapshot. This demand drives us to pursue new sources of funding. While the Recreation and Physical Education Department is maximizing facility use across West, East, and Central campuses, the need for additional space and program capacity continues to grow —particularly as students’ interests change each year. Gifts to Recreation & Physical Education not only support our day-to-day operations, but also provide critical funding for facility expansions, contemporary programs, and new equipment. An annual gift can help ensure our ability to offer diverse, high-quality recreation programs that promote health and wellness to the entire Duke community. Every gift, regardless of size, makes an immediate impact and helps inspire future donors. Missy Daffron
