Description
This collection comprises the official publications of the Office of Intercollegiate Athletics and Campus Recreation at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). Athletics publications include department-wide and sport-specific publications. Campus Recreation publications include those related to fitness and recreation programs and intramural sports. Also included are publications by organizations that support the UCI athletic program, such as the Big I Boosters and its successor, the Athletic Association.
Background
When the campus at the University of California, Irvine opened in the fall of 1965, the administration established the Department of Physical Education to complement the academic curriculum. UCI has never offered a physical education major, but recognizes fitness and recreation as part of a healthy lifestyle. Founding chancellor Dan Aldrich believed it was important to provide students and staff with the opportunity to participate in athletic activities. As a result, UCI has provided a wide range of non-academic athletic courses to students, staff, and the local community from the time of the university's inception. UCI Campus Recreation has held summer and winter sports camps for local youth since 1966 and also oversees intramural sports, club sports, and a variety of fitness programs on campus.
