The ALI Certificate Program is one of the the most comprehensive leadership programs available. It uses adventure leadership activities as a vehicle to discuss and practice leadership theories and skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, group development, communication and social change. It provides a classroom unlike any other in the world. Gritty, real examples of consequences and feedback based on a person’s competency and understanding of these areas. It forms the backbone of the club leadership and pairs with the OSU Leadership Minor, and several Majors.

The theory behind the certificates is that as you progress through each level, you will take classes that help you become both competent with the technical skills involved as well as learn to be a leader in experien­tial education and outdoor recreation.
