MIRSA Where Potential Meets Opportunity


Pay It Forward

Engagement Coordinators 

NIRSA’s Engagement Coordinators play a vital role for the association’s Regional Leadership Team. These volunteer leaders are the grass-roots-level representatives of the association, charged with educating members of their campus community about NIRSA and the many resources and opportunities it has to offer.

This position—filled with motivated, informed and skilled communicators—is a great step for emerging student and experienced professional members alike who are interested in increasing their involvement in NIRSA operations. Serving as an Engagement Coordinator is an excellent opportunity for NIRSA members to invest in their own professional development, while simultaneously supporting the growth of the association. NIRSA is continually looking to add engaged members to the ranks of Engagement Coordinators. Contact your State Student Leader or Regional Student Leader if you have any questions about volunteering, or simply complete and submit an Engagement Coordinator Interest Form.

Check out the video below to get a better idea about what an Engagement Coordinator is.

Development Sessions 

Development Sessions are discussions that occur via Google Hangouts which has a maximum of 10 spots per session.  This allows members extra opportunities to network and exchange ideas on specific program areas.  We do ask that if you and members of your staff plan to attend the session that you share a computer to save spaces for other members. Please have a few specific questions or comments that you would like to discuss ready and entered into the registration form when signing up.
