This inaugural institute is the combining of two previously held institutes: the NIRSA Intramural Sports Institute and the NIRSA Collegiate Sport Club Institute.
NIRSA is excited for the opportunity to make these two signature events even stronger, including the ability to add more sessions that address middle management positions who oversee these areas. Some other new features include hosting the institute on a university campus, offering different types of accommodations, and a new schedule outline.
