The NIRSA Research &and Assessment Committee and the NIRSA Foundation are pleased to announce the opening of the 2017 Salary Census! For the first time, participation will take place via a web-based platform. Anyone who has a NIRSA online profile—visit the NIRSA website to create an account—and is employed as a recreation professional at a collegiate recreation facility can participate.

Both NIRSA members and non-members alike are eligible to participate; however, the filtering function for results—which won’t be available until March 2018—is only available to individuals at NIRSA member institutions. To become a NIRSA member institution and gain access to the filters, please submit an institutional membership application or contact NIRSA Membership.

Participation from within the Association is critical to the strength of the instrument. Please consider contributing your data and encouraging your colleagues in the field to participate. Also consider supporting the NIRSA Foundation in all its good work—contact NIRSA Foundation Coordinator Kelley Hungerford to learn more.
