Mission and Goals
In line with the essential mission and purpose of Northwest Nazarene University as being “the development of Christian character within the philosophy and framework of genuine scholarship” the NNU Challenge Course builds upon this premise through the innovative approach of outdoor experiential education. This educational model, founded on the concept of “learning by doing,” seeks to serve as a facilitator of “holistic change" through intrapersonal, (individual), and interpersonal, (group), dynamics.
Thus the overriding mission of the Challenge Course Program is that each acquired individual and group learning opportunity, realized through games, initiatives, low and high ropes elements, be transferred to “real life experiences” in the workplace, home, church, school and community.
