Daniel Kifle, the Aquatics Coordinator in the department of Campus Recreation, had the opportunity to give a presentation at the annual National Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) Conference held in Nashville, Tennessee. The conference had 3,000 attendees from different Colleges and Universities across the nation.
Daniel and colleague from Virginia Tech presented on the professional and personal relationship between the full-time professional and the graduate assistant and how it is critical, and if not established, nurtured and constructively challenged, has the potential to jeopardize the success of your Campus Recreation program.
With Daniel’s presentation, attendees learned what it takes to build a healthy productive relationship between the professional and the graduate assistant that brings out the best in everyone and directly affects the overall success of your campus recreation department. Upon completing the presentation, Daniel received an award for his hard work and dedication to his aquatics department at Virginia Tech. Daniel says it was a great to represent Nova Southeastern University on such a large national stage and hopes that one day NSU can be at the recognized as one of the top NIRSA Institutions.
