ER-T2-7: Outdoors Program
Environmental Sustainability Manager
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:
This happens through many different entities on campus.
1. Rivers Institute/stewards program and rivers curriculum. The River Stewards program is an application program, so only designated students can participate; however, these leaders organize activities for students to go kayaking, hiking, etc. Also, the rivers curriculum is open to all students and includes outdoor activities and values "Leave No Trace" principles.
2. The student organization Sustainability Club, organizes such things for the student population and similarly values "Leave No Trace" principles.
3. The SEE initiative has many events/programs through various entities (academic, research, and co-curricular (LLC and special interest houses) that similarly has outdoor programs.
4. The new Outdoor Engagement Center offers educational opportunities for students wishing to participate in outdoor recreation, equipment rentals, and other events.
