The NIRSA Mission & Vision statements, developed with extensive participation from Members, represent the highest goals and ideals that inform association practices & decision-making. These are the priorities that brought NIRSA in to being, and which motivate our Members to volunteer their time and resources to each other through the Association.
NIRSA has adopted the tagline, Leaders in Collegiate Recreation, which clearly indicates our aim as an association: to set a powerful example and provide moving models for excellence in the collegiate recreation profession. This extends from the practices and knowledge shared by our professional Members to the issues and emerging trends that we support with new programs and research.
Areas in which NIRSA is dedicated to example-setting and development include:
- Sustainable Communities
- Health and Wellbeing
- Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
- Global Perspective
