Texas Woman’s University (TWU) was named the National Outdoor Champion among Division I universities throughout the US as part of Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education (AORE) Campus Challenge. TWU was also named Environmental Champion; Health/Wellbeing Champion; Developing Skills/Personal Growth Champion and Southwest Champion for the region.
Chancellor Carine Feyten is a champion of the program and its intent. She says: “I just believe in the collective power of our devoted Texas Woman’s community. I believe in the healing and rejuvenating powers of the outdoors and spending time in nature. I believe the outdoors have tangible benefits that contribute to the success of our students. And as a community, we have expressed these beliefs through initiatives like our Health and Wellbeing Initiative and woven them throughout our strategic plan.”
MPK&D is working with TWU on its Boldly Go comprehensive campaign.
