Mission, Vision, & Values

Campus Recreation Mission

Campus Recreation provides outstanding services, inclusive programs, and educational opportunities to empower the University of Mississippi community in the pursuit of lifelong well-being.

Campus Recreation Vision

The Flagship

The term flagship is used in common vernacular to identify the most important or leading member of a group. It has also come to be an adjective describing the most prominent or highly touted product, brand, location, or service among those offered by a company. Flagship universities are typically recognized as the best-known institutions in the state.

At Campus Recreation, our vision is to be The Flagship.

  •  We want to be recognized as one of The Flagship departments at the University of Mississippi.
  •  We want to be viewed as The Flagship university recreation program in the state.
  •  We want to be considered one of The Flagship collegiate recreation departments in the nation.

We want our staff to be dedicated to this concept of being The Flagship, a premier organization dedicated to high performance and recognized for excellence.

Campus Recreation Values

The Lyceum, the administration building at the University of Mississippi and the institution’s trademark emblem, has six pillars. As a symbol of our connection to the institution, Campus Recreation has developed six values that serve as the pillars for our program. At Campus Recreation, our values (pillars) are summarized in the acronym TEAM CR:


T = Teamwork – working together to achieve our common goal of being The Flagship

E = Excellence – striving for excellence in our work and service to the university community

A = Adaptability – being adaptable and responsive to the needs and expectations of our constituents

M = Mentoring – serving as mentors and role models for students and peers


C = Communication – communicating as a department and being responsive to our constituents
