Founded in 1789, Georgetown University is the nation’s oldest Catholic and Jesuit institution of higher learning. A residential university, Georgetown is seeking applicants for the position of Director of Outdoor Education. Georgetown is committed to educating the “whole person”, in that classroom learning is enriched by personal growth and learning beyond the classroom environment. Its students come from all over the United States and world, bringing with them strong academic talent, community involvement interest, and leadership motivation. The University enjoys easy access to many national organizations, federal and international government offices, cultural/artistic events, and is ideally located for outdoor pursuits. The Potomac River winds through Georgetown and into the Chesapeake Bay, providing numerous whitewater and sea kayak options along the way. Cliffs abutting the Potomac provide great rock climbing only 15 minutes away. A 1.5-hour drive to the Shenandoahs presents a wealth of hiking, climbing, and cycling opportunities, as do the mountains of West Virginia beyond. All of these options facilitate GU Outdoor Education in its central mission of providing leadership opportunities, wilderness instruction, and outdoor experiences to the Georgetown University community.
