Cameron Outlaw

Cam Outlaw serves as the Challenge 2050 Graduate Assistant for External Affairs by creating partnerships with local and international companies and organizations as well as coordinating the summer study abroad experience. Flowing with the traveling trend, this past summer he spent a 3 weeks in Colorado for leadership training, two weeks in Puerto Rico for missions, and two weeks Colombia just for fun. So far he has traveled to 18 countries, and hopes to visit many more in his lifetime. He holds fast to the adage “people are people’s medicine.” The power of community holds many of life’s remedies, therefore, invest greatly in great people. Cam is pursuing a master’s degree of Leadership in Agricultural Education and Communication. More specifically, he is studying the philosophy, theory, and application of leadership in sustainability. He hopes to develop educational systems and methods that equip educators and leaders to develop the capacity in followers to make hard decisions and lasting change. When not swimming the high seas of academia, you can find Cam climbing trees and rocks, laughing, speaking Spanish, and other fun, adventurous things. When traveling, he prefers to not have a plan and go where the wind takes him. His favorite quote comes from C. S. Lewis: “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”
