The NIRSA is a non-profit membership organization that leads in many recreational sports areas:  training and professional development, intramural sports, fitness programming, sports clubs, recreation facilities, outdoor recreation, wellness programs, informal recreation, and aquatic programs.  UIS is an institutional member of the NIRSA.
