NIRSA Research & Assessment Trends & Topics

With support from NIRSA Partner Precor, the Association will present the “Emerging Trends Panel” at the NIRSA Annual Conference that will provide in-depth analysis on an identified potential trend in the field, helping create cross-campus collaboration for the national trends in collegiate recreation, and expand NIRSA’s resources that add value to our membership.

Through this annual project, a panel of cutting-edge leaders will present the trend brought forward by you and your fellow NIRSA members. The results of this trend will be used to substantiate and promote campus recreation.
