A Unique Classroom
Many of you know that when Joy worked with the adventure program at Westminster college, her colleague, Steve Montgomery, was asked by the college to develop a graduate program in adventure education. Francois and Steve taught graduate students and CCO staff in this program for the last couple of years until Westminster closed the program. Ever since, we have been looking for a new partnering institution to accredit the program. Wheeling Jesuit University (WJU) has expressed interest in partnering with the CCO to re-open the graduate program. CCO staff are excited about this as are students we met at the Wilderness Education Association conference last week. WJU is currently reviewing our proposal. Check out the website that Joy designed for the program http://web.mac.com/outdoorleadership. We should know in a month or two if we have the green light from WJU and look forward to start teaching this summer.
