Information about the Outdoor Leadership (OL) Community
Warner Residential Learning Communities (RLCs) support students’ leadership development in natural resources, sustainability, and outdoor leadership. Outdoor Leadership (OL) students live and learn together; network with natural resources faculty, graduate students, student leaders, and community members; and gain professional development in natural resources and outdoor leadership. NR 192 seminar course topics focus on outdoor leadership principles and case study exploration in outdoor leadership practices. Service-learning activities focus on ecological and natural resource restoration for public access to recreation and natural areas. Students have linked course opportunities with CO 150 in special sections focused on natural resource food, energy, and water issues.

All Warner RLC students participate in professional development experiences to expand their knowledge and skills and take part in service-learning and career exploration in their chosen fields of study. At the start of the fall semester, RLC students take part in a common reading and participate in programming at the CSU Environmental Learning Center. Throughout the academic year, there are special opportunities for engagement such as unique events with WCNR faculty and behind-the-scenes tours at the Denver Zoo. Annual traditions include the WCNR RLC Inclusive Excellence Banquet in fall and the CSU Banff Mountain Film Festival in spring.

More information on community requirements and how to apply can be found on the Warner Residential Learning Communities site.
