The University Scholars Program Outdoor Explorations (OE) are designed to expose students to a variety of environments, activities, and experiences in the outdoors. Outings in OE are vehicles for discovery, education, reflection, and adventure. Each OE trip exposes students to a topic or skill set that is enhanced by time in the outdoors. When students return to campus after these adventures they are charged with sharing their experiences with their peers to foster a culture of engagement and ownership. OE staff use diverse techniques to reach these objectives including nature awareness, outdoor adventure, group development and creative documentation.
All OE activities are led by USP Assistant Director, Chester Brewer (firstname.lastname@example.org, 919.513.0704).
