NIRSA's Annual Service Award

NIRSA National Service Award

As collegiate recreation students and professionals, we are committed to serving others. The NIRSA Annual Service Award is an opportunity to celebrate the efforts of individuals in our community who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in their volunteer service.

The NIRSA Annual Service Award (formerly the National Service Award) annually recognizes up to six professional members and up to three student members for their outstanding contributions to NIRSA and the field of collegiate recreation. Help NIRSA set the standard of excellence in professional and student achievement by acknowledging exceptional performance, dedication, creativity, and innovation with a nomination for the NIRSA Annual Service Award.

Presented during the NIRSA Annual Conference, the awards are given to individuals who demonstrate exceptional performance during the previous year in leadership and development of NIRSA programs, policies, events, special projects, or committees. Winners will be acknowledged with a handsome plaque during the awards ceremony at the NIRSA Annual Conference, and have their names recognized in the NIRSA Know and NIRSA Annual Conference materials.

Nominations will be due early Fall 2015

Be sure to review the eligibility guidelines and selection criteria before applying.
