Outdoor Action was highlighted in the report as one of the approaches for improving the orientation process for undergraduates and graduate students. The report comments that one of the goals should be to:

  • Improve student orientation for undergraduates and graduate students by incorporating lessons from Outdoor Action's model of leadership training and group programming; revamping the "Reflections on Diversity" freshman orientation session to introduce core concepts and provide training on responding to bias; and expanding the diversity component in the Graduate School's orientation and addressing these issues in departmental orientations.

Outdoor Action has always incorporated the notion of building a successful and diverse community as part of our goals. The specific implementation of these goals are detailed in the Outdoor Action Diversity and Inclusion Initiative.
