NIRSA Community Connections

Have you been missing those informal chats and impromptu conversations that take place at conferences?

NIRSA is launching Community Connections: monthly virtual networking sessions designed to connect you with other campus recreation professionals. Attendees will break out into small groups to discuss a specific theme or topic. Join these informal talks to meet new members, reconnect with colleagues, and share your ideas! Community Connections are designed to be interactive and engaging for participants. Each month will bring a different topic, and different people, but the goal will remain the same. Connect with other campus recreation professionals from around the country and continue to create, build, and foster connection throughout our NIRSA community.

Upcoming Community Connections

Discussion prompts and a list of resources will be provided ahead of time in the NIRSA Connect community linked to the event (you are automatically added upon registration). It is important to review these materials in advance so you are prepared to participate and share ideas on this topic.

These sessions are structured to be highly participatory!
