HEY NACURH!...[HEY WHAT?]...It wouldn’t be a national conference without SPIRIT and we can’t wait to feel (and hear) the energy that your delegation will bring to NMSU! There will be many ways to show spirit before and during conference and we want to recognize the most spirited institutions in multiple categories! The various spirit awards that will be distributed at the Closing Ceremony of conference are listed below. Scroll down to find out how your institution can win a Spirit Award or even, the ever coveted NACURH Spirit Stick!


We will be measuring and tracking Spirit through SPIRIT POINTS. Spirit points can be acquired through social media engagement before the conference, attending Educational Sessions during the conference, and showing your institutional and regional pride through Spirit Days, Roll Call, and of course the CHANTS!
