Educational institutions have only in recent years appreciated the need to educate people in the management of recreation, due primarily to the increasing leisure time available and the upsurge of sport and recreation participation. Student leisure time must also be managed effectively, particularly in today's economic climate. For this to be achieved, calls for many diverse principles of management that responsible personnel must acquire. The principles of management are widely documented in the literature, but their relevance to campus recreation in institutes of Higher Education appear to be greatly deficient and fragmented. Hence, there is very little literature offering guidance for administrators of campus recreation. This situation prompted the author to investigate for any relevant information pertaining to campus recreation.
