Operating as an academic major and minor for students at Asbury and an instructional outfitter for the public, KOI’s primary goal is to educate.

The adventure education technique uses an experiential learning approach — indoors or outdoors — that puts individuals and groups into situations with uncertain outcomes that allow them to struggle with problems, engage creative solutions and use trial and error.
