Welcome to the Department of Recreation Management and Physical Education (RMPE) at Appalachian State University.

Please explore our website to learn more about our purpose and programs, as well as the many unique features making the Department of RMPE a place where Mountains of Opportunity abound.

Established in 2014, the Department of RMPE resides in the prestigious Beaver College of Health Sciences. Thanks to the efforts of many distinguished former and current faculty, staff and students, RMPE is one of two new departments that evolved from the Department of Health, Leisure and Exercise Science.

The Department of RMPE is pleased to honor the legacy of such noble Mountaineers by continuing to offer a variety of innovative and rigorous student-centered programs and services, each of which share a commitment to achieving our mission and pursuing our vision.

Thanks for visiting the Department of RMPE.

Please feel free to contact us for more information or to schedule a visit.

In Mountaineer Pride,
