Hey NIRSA members: do you have something or someone that you’d like to see featured in the NIRSA news? Member spotlights are a key feature of NIRSA’s news and a great way to shine a national (and even international) spotlight on outstanding individuals, programs, or initiatives.

Want to express an opinion about an issue or policy affecting campus recreation? Have a personal story about the campus recreation job market or the hiring process? Have you noticed a new trend in exercise or recreation? Whatever your idea, we want to hear about it.

Check out the pitch us your ideas page of the NIRSA website for details about the process as well as terms and conditions.

“The challenges we face on campus are only growing, so we need to explore other options to help support our students’ ambitions. I wanted to write for NIRSA to share ideas and start a conversation with other professionals about NIRSA’s role in supporting students,” says Adam Shanley,  Club Sport Coordinator at Drexel University and author of “From Philly to France—our students are the wind in our sails.”

“The team at NIRSA Headquarters were easy to work with and amenable to my timeline. I received an outpouring of support from peers after writing this article and it helped to reconnect me with some professionals whom I had lost touch with,” adds Adam.

“The process is pretty easy and it’s a great way to tell your story about what you’ve learned,” says Shaneisha Weir, Recreational Sports Specialist at the Central Campus of Houston Community College and co-author of “Creating Houston Community College’s unified sports program.” “Writing for NIRSA also provides you with a great opportunity to network with professionals you may only otherwise see at the Annual Conference,” she adds.
