Registration is open for the 2020 NIRSA School for Mid-level Professionals! This incredible professional development opportunity will take place in Tampa, Florida from May 17–21. With its focused content, expert faculty members, and small learning environment that supports the building of a professional network, attendees report that the NIRSA School is one of their favorite professional development opportunities.

“The NIRSA School was one of the best professional development opportunities that I have been a part of,” says Jordan Olson, Associate Director for Facilities and Programs at Western Michigan University. “It ranks right up there with attending my first Region Lead On as an undergrad which was very influential in shaping my career path and becoming the person I am today. I highly recommend this experience to other NIRSA professionals.”

And Erin Patchett, Director, Administration and Assessment at Colorado State University-Fort Collins, adds, “I took something valuable away from every single educational session, met truly amazing people, and felt both support and challenge from my cohort, the other attendees, and the faculty.”

With their influence across, down, and up reporting lines, mid-level professionals are strongly positioned to contribute to organizational culture, lead their colleagues, influence change, and contribute to critical decisions on their campuses. That’s why this year’s School will focus on themes related to organizational culture and people management as well as topics related to value-based decision making and resource management.

The lodging rate for this event ends on Friday, April 17, but don’t wait too long to register—seats are limited to 48 and they usually don’t last long. Start the new decade by learning the skills and making the connections that will help you be a leader and change agent on your campus. Register for the 2020 NIRSA School for Mid-Level Professionals today!
