Graduating with a Bachelor of Physical and Health Education (BPHE) degree with a specialty in Outdoor Adventure Leadership (ADVL) is a unique reality in Canada offered by Sudbury's Laurentian University. Developed over 20 years ago, the ADVL program has been one of Laurentian's six landmark Human Kinetics programs. From a scholastic perspective the ADVL students (nicknamed ADVLers) are striving to become competent leaders in the outdoors by acquiring sound theoretical knowledge, building their technical skills and participating in a wide range of enriching educational and work-related experiences, all the while hoping to develop a lucrative career after graduation. With top-notch students and a powerhouse of professors and instructors, the ADVL program is poised for international recognition in the outdoor adventure marketplace. This article provides a background of the ADVL program.
