NIRSA is proud to offer members a platform to spotlight their outstanding colleagues.
Whether it’s a longtime NIRSA member who is retiring from the department, an up-and-coming GA who has a bright future in the profession ahead of them, a colleague who’s been recognized with a campus or community accolade, or someone you want to recognize for another reason entirely, we are happy to collaborate with you to celebrate their excellence.
We consider proposals for articles that express an opinion on issues and policies affecting campus recreation as well as those that explore—through the author’s personal experience—some aspect of the broader collegiate recreation community.
We publish first-person pieces on topics including the job market and the hiring process; the graduate-school experience; professional challenges in research; new trends in exercise and recreation; publishing, teaching, and service work; academic culture; and balancing work and family life.
Tell us about your program’s success stories!
Has your program recently celebrated a milestone? Or have you introduced a new program that went even better than you expected? Maybe your welcome week helped start the school year off on the right foot, or the annual shutdown and spring clean of your facilities has afforded your team an opportunity to revisit its values. Whether you are bringing back an old favorite for your campus or trying something for the first time, share your successes with your NIRSA colleagues across North America.
