At UREC, we work to create an environment where our student employees can be inspired to grow in knowledge, skills and abilities that promote and advance healthy lifestyles. 

The mission of the UREC Student Development Committee is to provide programming to develop UREC students at the beginning, during and at the end their time of employment at UREC. To accomplish this mission, we provide training, D3 Student Leadership Series development sessions, and resources for our student staff. Questions? Contact the Assistant Director for Operations.
