Intro

 

Community

Mansfield is located in north central Pennsylvania just below the New York State border. Its primary industry is tourism with year-round outdoor activities and beautiful mountain and canyon scenery.  The area has spectacular walking and biking trails as well as outdoor festivals, music concerts and heritage celebrations in most of the area towns. The surrounding mountains are a hunter’s paradise in the winter with seasons for small game, bear and deer.  All seasons provide inspiring scenery that have attracted artists and photographers for decades. Mansfield’s Fabulous 1890s Weekend, sponsored jointly by Mansfield University and the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce, is held the last weekend in September, celebrating the site of the world’s first night football game.

Highlight1

One of Mansfield’s newest programs, Outdoor Recreation Leadership, combines classroom and experiential learning in recreation-oriented core classes, leadership training and practical geographic skills.  The program takes full advantage of the area’s scenic mountains, lakes and hiking and biking trails.  The nearby state parks, state forest and game lands are ideal settings for our recreation-oriented core courses.  Outdoor Recreation Leadership is an emphasis in the Geography and Geology Department, which also offers areas of study in Watershed Management, Environmental Science, Mapping Technology, Earth & Space Science Education and Geography. 

Highlight2

The Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership is an online program that provides knowledge in leadership across a wide spectrum of disciplines and organizational settings.  In this interdisciplinary program students learn about organizational environment, leadership skills in a variety of settings and how to apply these skills.  The program prepares students to assume leadership positions in local, regional, national and international organizations. These career areas include education, health care, human resources, business enterprises, social services, sports and the arts, among others.
