Learn Skills for the Outdoors and Beyond

Through the Outdoor Program’s Sport Studies, Recreation and Athletics (SSRA) classes, you can try something new or pursue a passion—all while earning course credit.

You’ll find outdoor classes for every experience level from beginner to advanced. Along the way, you can develop problem-solving and leadership skills that will benefit you as you explore the outdoors and as you navigate through life in general.

The Leadership Education Advancement Fund (LEAF) provides need-based awards to reduce course fees for SSRA OP leadership classes, ensuring costs won't be a barrier to any qualifying student who wishes to enroll.

Safety First

The OP also offers Wilderness First Responder courses in January and March and a Wilderness First Responder Recertification course in February.
