Leadership & Challenge Center
This project is the result of a cooperative effort between the St. Lawrence County Health Initiative (www.slchiinc.org/) and SUNY Potsdam to bring a state-of-the-art adventure-based education facility to the area.
SLCHI contributed $90,000 for the facility through a grant from the United States Department of Education's Carol M. White Physical Education Program that was awarded in October of 2004. The total includes $8,000 of equipment purchased for the wall and ropes course and $82,000 directly paid for construction of the climbing wall itself.
The SUNY Potsdam Student Government Association contributed $25,000 to the project in the spring of 2005.
The dean of the School of Education and Professional Studies at SUNY Potsdam provided $15,750 and additional funding for climbing equipment.
The Office of the Vice President of Business Affairs contributed $15,750 in support of the construction of the project.
