UVM Outing Club

Outing Club Leadership

Our leader community is the backbone of the OC. Our leaders make the outing club the body that so many people have come to love: they lead trips, teach development programs, run the OC Haus, and help shape the community that surrounds the largest club at UVM. All of this to get as many people outside as possible.

This new leader montage has been created with connectivity, inclusion, and transparency in mind, with the aim of strengthening the connection between our leaders and UVM at large. We asked our leaders to tell us a little bit about themselves, to give a face to who makes up this branch of the OC. Check in here before you go on a trip to get a sense of your leaders!
