This highly successful premier education and networking event was developed specifically for Campus Recreation Directors/Chief Administrators.

Who Should Attend

Attendees are typically the leader of the Department of Campus Recreation, and are responsible for a comprehensive portfolio of programs, personnel and facilities, including being ultimately accountable for all things that occur in the Campus Recreation Department.

Holistic & Inclusive Programming

NIRSA’s deep relationships with other Higher Education Associations as well as NIRSA’s holistic approach to inclusive content will showcase an in-depth opportunity for attendees to learn and engage about key issues and trends in Higher Education and Campus Recreation.

Packed Schedule

The overall schedule will include a welcome reception followed by two full days of collaborative presentations, small and large group discussions, and group networking events and activities.

The NIRSA Triventure was incredibly relevant to the work that we are currently doing in all three areas of recreation back on our campus. It was an excellent learning experience.

Dave Bryngil, Saint Peter's University

NIRSA Triventure is a great conference for a small university as these three areas are key for us and you can gain valuable info on all three areas. The size of the conference is great so that you can build relationships with those attending the conference in a more meaningful way due to the intimate nature of the sessions and the facility tours. Well Done!

Rin Seibert, Valparaiso University

It was a great opportunity to see some current clients, CSU – Fort Collins and University of Washington. We had the opportunity to meet new clients NDSU and Virginia Tech. We had the opportunity to keep the conversation going with potential clients the University of Central Florida and the University of New Hampshire. InnoSoft will continue to participate in the NIRSA Triventure.
