Outstanding Sports Facility Awards Committee

Description: The Outstanding Sports Facilities Committee works with NIRSA Headquarters to administer and promote the Outstanding Sports Facilities Awards program. Presented each year at the Annual Conference, these awards recognize innovation and achievement in the designs of new, renovated, or expanded collegiate recreational facilities of NIRSA Member institutions. This committee encourages applications for the award, reviews all submissions, and selects the winners.

Strategic Goal & Objective(s)

Goal I, Objective 1: Increase opportunities for communication and networking among members.

Goal I, Objective 3: Increase leadership development offerings that will enhance career advancement.

The committee is expected to work across the Association to complete these charges.  Many committees may have some overlap with other committees and are encouraged to reach out to other groups to connect the work. Additional charges may be presented to the committee, or by the committee, during the year as new initiatives arise.
