The foremost task of education is to insure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self-denial, and above all, compassion.
— Kurt Hahn,
co-founder, Outward Bound
LEARNING AND ADVENTURE. As an academic institution, WNMU approaches outdoor education as a serious endeavor. Our goal is to purposefully engage students in direct experiences and focused reflection in order to increase knowledge, develop skills, clarify personal values, and develop the capacity to contribute to the WNMU community and beyond.
CLASSES. Information and instructions are found on the Classes page, along with descriptions of For Credit Class offerings. Registration is simple. Login to your Mustang Express Account and register as you would other WNMU classes.
TRIPS. A variety of trip destinations multiply the kinds of outdoor adventures students, faculty, staff and members of the Western Institute for Lifelong Learning (WILL) can experience -
Trips are Not For Credit.
RESOURCES. Resource and Equipment Rental information helps you prepare for Classes and Trips, or for your personal excursions into the wilderness.
