Place-Based Learning

Amazing Race - Ellensburg

Each winter quarter, CWU students team up to put their Ellensburg navigation skills and leadership knowledge to the test. Like the popular television program, teams race across town to collect as many points as possible; but, beware, challenges await at every turn! The Amazing Race-Ellensburg is a great way to explore our community, learn about leadership, and have a great time. (Winter Quarter)

Cross-Cultural Leadership Program

CCLP brings approximately 15 students together as an annual cohort to explore the relationship between leadership and culture. Participants enjoy a hands-on training approach during a fall retreat and monthly seminars. The year concludes with a capstone experience in the spring. (Ongoing)

Kittitas Connect

Kittitas Connect brings together a series of events with the purpose of getting CWU students into the community in positive ways. Student volunteers will complete various tasks in Downtown Ellensburg, at Olmstead State Park and along the Yakima River. Co-sponsored by Outdoor Pursuits and Rentals, the City of Ellensburg and Olmstead Place State Park. (Fall Quarter)
