Inclusivity at the RAW

Inclusivity at the RAW

The Recreation and Wellness Center aims to create a safe, welcoming, and accessible environment for all members of our campus community to further their health and well-being journey. We promote inclusivity by delivering a wide variety of programs and services. We support the fact that well-being is defined differently by each individual. The RAW is committed to creating opportunities for each member to Do Well-Being You!

If you have suggestions or ideas on ways in which we can create a more welcoming, inclusive, and accessible enviroment, please let us know! If you would like to tour the Recreation and Wellness Center please call the Front Desk to confirm availability or email rawcenter@csueastbay.edu
