Dennison has been involved in the Outdoor Education and Experiential Education fields for over 20 years. As a researcher and practitioner in these fields, he has continued to build a professional portfolio based on formal education and practical application. His professional development has also included the completion of various outdoor related certification courses, as well as, obtaining an advanced degree from the University of Northern Colorado.
Currently, Dennison serves as the Executive Director for Selkirk Outdoor Leadership & Education (SOLE). To meet the needs of the diverse populations that SOLE works with Dennison continually strives to design and implement programming which integrates education and experience with research-based evidence. His administrative and teaching experience has included both secondary and post secondary educational institutions, as well as, corporate agencies and leading outdoor education organizations. The institutions have included Texas A&M University, Challenge Works, University of Northern Colorado, National Outdoor Leadership School, Second Nature Wilderness Program and most recently Monarch School. Being employed at each program has served to strengthen Dennison’s professional experience through direct application of field-related methodologies, supporting continued expansion.
Dennison’s personal pursuits mesh well with his chosen field, so when he is not driving the SOLE vision you can find him in the backcountry of North Idaho or floating down a desert river corridor.
