Faculty

"I am interested in seeking out connections between people, academic disciplines and with the natural world. It is an honor to be involved in the process through which students realize these connections and expand their sense of the possible."

Lee has extensive experience as a mountaineer and has worked as a climbing guide in Colorado, Alaska and abroad. His 25 years of experience as an outdoor educator include work with therapeutic programs for at-risk youth, instructing mountaineering courses for the National Outdoor Leadership School and guiding on Denali (Mt. McKinley, AK). He is increasingly drawn to rivers and arctic environments and combines these in extended canoe expeditions in the north. Lee is committed to an interdisciplinary approach in his classes which integrate adventure, environmental studies and cultural awareness while developing technical skills in navigation, mountaineering and river travel.
