The Interdisciplinary Center for Environmental and Outdoor Education was established to create and coordinate curricular and extracurricular environmental and outdoor education programs that serve the needs of the College, regional educators and the general public. Students enrolled in the Center’s programs benefit from SUNY Cortland’s long-standing commitment to environmental and outdoor education. The College’s three field campuses, Brauer Education Center, Hoxie Gorge, and the Outdoor Education Center at Raquette Lake, established in 1948, offer students a vast array of field study opportunities. The Center also hosts a national organization, The Coalition for Education in the Outdoors.
