    Campus recreation departments are looking to expand beyond the walls of indoor recreation areas. The goal is to create a Healthy Campus™, where student and faculty health and wellness are part of the college experience. This session will teach proven ways to advocate for new campus recreation initiatives, a framework to quantify results, and a design methodology to transform outdoor areas into spaces where people engage in “Accidental Fitness™.” Our experts will present research on the physical, social, and emotional health benefits of outdoor fitness. You’ll also see case study examples of campus recreation professionals who champion this outdoor fitness approach and the positive outcomes of their efforts.

A valued certification program provides enormous promise for educators working in student affairs and campus recreation to demonstrate ongoing learning, identify high quality professional development opportunities, and open new pathways for their professional mobility and career advancement. This session will provide an overview of how NIRSA volunteer leaders have spent the last two years in partnership with our student affairs peers to develop a new certification, and what developments you can expect in the upcoming months.

    In 2021, NIRSA partnered with 122 Consulting to embark on a climate assessment initiative with the aim of gathering data about the ways members were experiencing the Association through a lens of justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion (JDEI). Over the fall and winter, a climate assessment—grounded in 122’s Sustained Impact Model that includes self (self-awareness, individual accountability), spheres (interpersonal dynamics, relationships), and systems (embedded culture, policies, and practices)—was conducted by 122 Consulting with oversight and support from NIRSA’s EDI Climate Study Steering Committee. Crucially, this work was supported by NIRSA Foundation donors. Data for the climate study was gathered by surveying members and nonmembers, facilitating focus groups, and receiving input from the Steering Committee. Findings from those efforts are presented and discussed in this report.
