Are you maximizing your benefits as a NIRSA professional member? Did you know that NIRSA’s facility benchmarking resource, the NIRSA Institutional Data Set (IDS), has recently opened a new year of data collection? These data will be used to develop reports that will be made available at a discount for all participants.

Every professional member has point-and-click access to the data within the IDS; however, access to filtered results is restricted to participating institutions. Members from participating institutions will also receive discounts on future reports.

To make participation easier than ever before, any previously-submitted data from previous years can be easily carried forward using the ‘Copy Prior Year’ button on each page within the IDS. With this feature, participants only need to update any data that’s changed and then hit submit. More information regarding the NIRSA IDS is available on the FAQ section of the NIRSA IDS webpage.

NIRSA’s IDS platform is made possible by contributions to the NIRSA Foundation general fund. For more information regarding the NIRSA Foundation, please contact NIRSA Director of Philanthropy Kim Holmes.
