Campus Partners

Our campus partners are excellent resources to help you learn about diverse opportunities and plan trips. You can meet with knowledgeable staff to develop your own adventure idea, or join an existing program such as the Outdoor Pursuits Program and the Holden Center’s Wilderness Institute for Leadership Development (WILD).



The best way to prepare for medical emergencies in the wilderness is to be up to date on your CPR, Wilderness First Responder (NOLS), and Wilderness Medicine certifications. Find classes to get certified below.

Find what you need

Do some research on your trip before you go. Our video library contains an abundance of media on biking, camping, climbing, environmentalism, kayaking, marathon running, mountaineering, skateboarding, skiing, snowboarding, and surfing. We also offer free safety equipment at the Allard and Casey Memorial Safety Library including personal locator beacons, avalanche equipment, radios, and GPS units.
