2. Leadership Courses (2)*
3. Foundations of the Outdoor Recreation Economy (FORE101)*
4. Coaching & Mentoring*

*It is important to note that the Leadership Courses, FORE101, and coaching and mentoring take place concurrently. Here's the full schedule:
Your introduction to the program
10 June 2020
Your program has two (2) orientations: one a virtual web meeting taking place at 10AM PST on June 10th, and a second that is a self-access Introduction to the program, which can be completed at your leisure.
You should complete the Introduction module BEFORE the Virtual Orientation.
2 Courses over 12 Weeks
June 15 - September 1
Designed in partnership with public and private sector leaders, coursework will equip emerging professionals with the skills and knowledge needed to grow into leadership positions and help shape the future of outdoor recreation.
This button will activate on the first day of class.
These courses are structured week to week, from Monday through Sunday. The classes are asynchronous - meaning you can participate when you have time to do so. However, you are encouraged to participate early in the week to keep up on discussions and topics.
Courses are held on the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS).
You must sign up for an OSU Canvas guest account to access the courses. Sign up for a Canvas visitor account here, then let OREI know the social email used to sign up.
You can return to the same Canvas Visitor page and select the email/provider you signed up with to log in.
Coaching & Mentoring
Throughout the program, a professional coach is available to help dive into the assessments you take, understand your personal perspective on leadership and growth, and help develop a plan of action for success.
Additionally, your industry mentor will help guide the development and execution of your program project. The mentor will give you feedback on your idea, help identify areas for you to stretch and grow, and walk you through the presentation at the end.
You are expected to initiate and maintain contact with your coach and mentor. Read more about expectations and getting started in the introduction module.
Sept 14 - 18
The Virtual Capstone event will be held in lieu of an in-person event due to COVID-19 and existing travel restrictions.
You will be receiving additional information and materials via email.
Please make sure to email to reserve your presentation slot.
