The Office of Experiential Education at Gettysburg College utilizes experiential techniques, a challenge course, and wilderness based curricula to highlight leadership development. With a philosophy rooted in open discourse and personalized challenge, our leadership curricula are designed to focus on the humanistic characteristics of leadership rather than notions of positional or skill based leadership. Our experiences are focused on connection, listening to learn, providing feedback that fosters dialogue, and seeking solutions that support the philosophy and ethos of an organization.

Our process is developmental in approach and is catered to the specific needs of each group. The Office of Experiential Education has been facilitating challenge course programs to the campus community, federal and state agencies, non-profits and educational groups for over fifteen years.Ropes course
