The MSU Outdoor Recreation Program engages, develops, and empowers the leaders of tomorrow using the outdoors as our classroom.
Leadership: We develop the leaders of tomorrow by utilizing outdoor recreation as our laboratory. Our graduates are well equipped to lead others against the challenges that face our world.
Community: We believe in a robust community of learners and adventurers who grow and develop together. Our graduates embody that belief through intentional community building and effective communication skills.
Self-awareness: We foster a space for students of all backgrounds to develop an awareness of themselves. Our graduates possess a growth mindset and robust critical thinking skills that apply beyond the boundaries of outdoor recreation.
