Adventure Leadership and Programming (ALP) is a minor in the Human Performance and Physical Education department. This unique 21 credit hour minor exposes students to the critical skills necessary to be an effective leader in the back-country as well as in any profession. Students can begin taking classes in the spring or summer.

The Adventure Leadership and Programming minor is designed so that a group of 9 students can go through the course progression in one year of study. Students are encouraged to apply during their second semester of their first year, but applications are accepted year round.

While students learn technical skills such as snow pack assessment or climbing anchor system construction, the core components of an ALP course will focus on developing the interpersonal skills and teaching skills that empower individuals to be effective in any profession.
