SUAPS mission statement

SUAPS – The Université Paris-Dauphine Athletics & Recreation Department

SUAPS Mission statement 

Our mission is to allow a vast majority of students, faculty and staff to engage in athletic activities. 

We encourage students, faculty and staff to:

  • Practice at least one, and ideally several, sports for pleasure
  • Engage in one club or competition sport
  • Take one athletic course for credit (all students whatever their degree program can earn course credits for qualifying athletics classes)

Sports is an essential ingredient for university life, it:

  • helps to develop one’s physical potential, maintaining and improving fitness
  • a source of equilibrium – it helps you manage stress and stay healthy
  • encourages community spirit and teamwork, facilitates integration and gives students the opportunity to participate in the university sports movement as responsible citizens
