The office is staffed by two full time professionals and twenty-five student volunteers. These students receive extensive training to facilitate wilderness, challenge course and leadership programs for Gettysburg College. The professional staff also honors outside contracts to provide leadership training and support to colleges, non-profits, and other agencies.
Mission statement: The Office of Experiential Education uses leadership and adventure curricula to catalyze personal and professional development. Through experiential techniques, we seek to create positive, innovative learning opportunities for members of the Gettysburg College community to experience diverse environments, to understand and respect those with different values than their own, and to grow as individuals.
