The NIRSA Canadian Leadership Team (CLT) was formed in June of 2013 with the focus to further the engagement and support of Campus Recreation professionals within Canada. The CLT is made up of a Chair, Secretary and a professional and student leader from each province. Chris Dawe serves as the Chair, and Debbie Marinoff Shupe serves as the Secretary for the 2016-2017 CLT.
Within the CLT, the focused work teams of Advocacy and Assessment have furthered this work in collaboration with NIRSA.
The Canadian Advocacy work team, otherwise known as Canada in Motion, primary focus is to promote the value of campus rec to university administration, as well as engage more campus rec professionals in NIRSA to strengthen the profession by increasing networking and information sharing.
The Canadian Assessment work team is focusing on building data within Canada to help Campus Recreation “Tell their story.” They are focusing on the NASPA Consortium Recreation & Wellness Survey, NIRSA Institutional Data Set and compiling Best Practice Resources.
