You can now order your copy of the Equity, Diversity & Inclusion: A resource guide for Leaders in Collegiate Recreation!


The 268-page, full-color publication compiles foundational concepts, research-driven best practices, and case studies to help campus recreation professionals develop competencies around EDI—for their own personal and professional growth as well as for their departments.

It also features nearly 40 case studies—all based on actual examples of situations that have occurred in campus recreation departments in the US and Canada and drawn from the over 100 case studies that were submitted by Commissioners and NIRSA members over the past few years.

For a limited time only: Order a hard-copy of the guide!

In response to member interest – and just in time for back-to-school! – NIRSA is offering a limited time opportunity to purchase a hardcopy, printed version of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion: A resource guide for Leaders in Collegiate Recreation.

NIRSA members will have until August 1 to purchase the EDI Resource Guide. The intention behind this short timeline is to ensure members have the guide as the new school year begins.

If at least 50 copies of the guide are ordered by that time, NIRSA will be able to print and ship the guide. If the 50-copy threshold is not reached, orders will be refunded.

If you place your order, you’ll be receiving this 268-page guide, bound with “perfect binding,” in full, fantastic color shipped directly to your (or your institution’s) door!

While we hope individuals will purchase this guide for their own personal and professional growth, we also hope institutions will opt to invest in this resource for their departments. Each guide will cost $95; individuals at institutional member schools will be able to purchase copies at the discounted rate of $75. Be sure to login to your NIRSA profile to see your discounted price when purchasing.

While the EDI Resource Guide will continue to be available on the NIRSA website for no charge, this is the only opportunity to purchase the guide in hardcopy. Don’t wait – order your copy of this incredible resource today!
