The Office of Regional Services is pleased to have provided guidance for SUU's Outdoor Initiative (OI) from 2008 through 2010. In this capacity, the office served as the designated contact, clearinghouse and coordinator for the OI as well as both maintained and oversaw the implementation of the OI Action Plan.
As outlined in the OI Action Plan, Southern Utah University will be renowned for innovative learning experiences within our unique natural environment, providing world-class opportunities for outdoor education and recreation, and cultivating a life-long curiosity and appreciation for the land.

In support of the OI Vision and Action Plan, Regional Services managed the Outdoor Initiative Fund through the end of 2011. Programs, projects and activities across the University have benefitted from this funding.
An inventory of the University’s numerous OI-related academic and recreation activities and programs, community partnerships and services, and campus facilities can be found here. Many of these endeavors received support from the Office of Regional Services through the OI Fund, and a complete list of the programs and projects funded through the Outdoor Initiative and OI Fund can be found here.
With the planning throughout 2011 and subsequent creation of the University's new Harry Reid Outdoor Engagement Center in August 2011, the formal activities of the Outdoor Initiative ceased within the Office of Regional Services.
