Leadership in Collegiate Recreation

NIRSA supports the development of #GreatLeaders

To respond effectively to the complex educational, social, and economic concerns of society, college and university educators must develop leaders with the competence to meet the challenges of a constantly changing environment, the ability to think strategically, and a penchant to act collaboratively.

NIRSA is committed to providing collegiate recreation professionals and students with resources to strengthen their efforts around intentional leadership development of staff and participants.
