Outdoor Initiatives

An engaging and exciting program, our outdoor initiatives program provides experiential learning opportunities for our students and employees.

A trained facilitator tailors specific activities to your group, which may include icebreakers, problem solving, communication, low-ropes challenges and conflict resolution.

This program also utilizes the woods on the south side of West Campus. Some of the activities are permanent; others will be set up using the natural surroundings.

D.U.C.K.S. Leadership is offered for classes, departments, clubs, and programs for an hour time frame for a whole day. We will create opportunities to develop student and employee leadership.

Leadership Toolbox
