About Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
The higher education environment is being changed by the shifting dynamics of its students and its workforce.
Students and employees are becoming more diverse on a broad range of dimensions including gender, sex, sexual orientation, language, age, ability status, national origin, religion, socio-economic status, as well as race, ethnicity, and heritage. Those who manage programs and services, as well as those who help to develop the talents of students and the workforce, need to be prepared to address the environmental factors that influence performance and affect overall wellbeing.

A Discussion on Inclusion and Member Experience-Applying NIRSA's Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Resource Guide to Member Services
Equity, diversity & inclusion is regularly discussed on college campuses. But we want to take a deeper dive into what practical applications are being applied in our work settings within collegiate recreation, specifically focused in the area of member services. What are we doing to emphasize the importance of inclusion? How can we take the resource guide developed by the NIRSA Commission on Equity, Diversity & Inclusion and make positive changes in our day to day operations? Join us during this session as we highlight ideas already in action, discuss challenges and idea share with colleagues.
Perceived Stress and Concerns of College Students at a Hispanic-serving Institution in the Time of COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the lives of many people. College students experienced an abrupt change in their lives. Suddenly, all their courses were fully online, and their campus was closed until further notice. For some students, the university provided access to essential goods and services that they severely depended on. Students who utilized access to their university’s facilities such as the recreation/fitness center, dining halls, libraries, and campus life buildings suddenly had nowhere to go. Some students depended on other services the university could no longer provide such as small business mentorship, free arts and cultural events, free local television programming, and an Institute of Health Equity dedicated to the community. This presentation will share findings from a study that measured perceived stress and key concerns that undergraduate students experienced during the COVID-19 Pandemic while attending a Hispanic-serving institution.
