A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome :
In 2009, as part of the University’s Fun Initiative, students proposed the idea of an 18-hole disc golf course on campus. In September 2010, the idea was approved by the President of the University and construction began in winter of 2011. The course was designed by H.B. Clark, who had more than thirty years of disc golf course design experience and is on the Professional Disc Golf Association. The course was financed by Recreation and Wellness and constructed by University Facilities. The course was built with 100% recycled materials and no trees were cut down in the construction process. The course opened on March 16, 2011. Since then, the course has provided a fun and relaxing way for students, faculty, staff, and the community to exercise and stay active while promoting the use of recycled materials.
