Does the institution have a wilderness or outdoors program that organizes hiking, backpacking, kayaking, or other outings for students and follows Leave No Trace principles?:

A brief description of the program:

Currently the University offers a Climbing/Hiking 3-credit class. The program started in 99 as a club and the then president of the club remains as class instructor today. The class is based on taking a theory in mountaineering, rappel and ropes. Besides attending all theory classes students have to take at least 3 weekend trips during the semester.
The class has a policy of leave no trace behind but has no theory on it. As for rock climbing the policy is to use previous bolts.
