SACAD: John Heinrichs Scholarly and Creative Activity Days


In the spring of 2023, FHSU Sport and Recreation Day was established to bridge the gap between curricular and co-curricular learning and assessment. The Spring 2024 class of HHP 371 Leisure Administration and Programming, in partnership with FHSU Student Engagement, FHSU Athletics, and USD 489 Lincoln Elementary, successfully implemented a program that combined both types of activities. The objective was to improve student professionalism and retention of programming principles related to recreation and leisure activities. Thanks to the participation of experts from various fields utilizing the philosophical framework of stewards of place; students, participants, and staff were able to integrate new learning and life experiences for youth and adult participants within the University and Hays Communities.
