NIRSA members now have access to a resource to develop their understanding and application of equity, diversity, and inclusion within campus recreation.

The publication, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion: A resource guide for Leaders in Collegiate Recreation, compiles foundational concepts, research-driven best practices, and case studies to help campus recreation professionals develop competencies around EDI – for their own personal and professional growth, as well as for their departments.

Within this resource guide:

  1. Introduction to equity, diversity, and inclusion and the NIRSA EDI Identity Wheel.
  2. Definitions for a broad range of terminology associated with the nine identities focused on in this guide.
  3. Case studies to help you consider and grow your understanding of equity, diversity, and inclusion in campus recreation.
