Theory of leadership and management taught in the classroom is reinforced with experiential learning and hands-on training during leadership labs where students get the opportunity to exercise both their minds and bodies. A well-established leadership development program reinforces this training with leadership opportunities for our students where they can practice leading their peers through multiple scenarios. This process is supplemented with documented developmental counseling where students identify and reflect on their strengths/weaknesses and take necessary steps to improve over time.
We have 12 problem-solving/team-building obstacles used to facilitate hands-on leadership development for our students. These obstacles are also used by different varsity sports, summer camps and community organizations.
The 45-foot rappel tower with wall and open rappelling and a two- lane climbing wall provides adventure training that assists with team building through a common experience and builds resilience in the face of adversity.
We have access to a state-certified weapons firing range and thousands of acres of public land within 10 minutes of campus where we have established multiple Land Navigation Courses.
We have additional access to a small prior military base from the World War II era with multiple buildings where we practice tactical leadership and team building with the use of Airsoft Weapons.
