LOGAN — Utah State University’s Outdoor Product Design and Development program has formed an industry advisory board that consists of leading companies in the outdoor recreation industry.

The program was created in January 2016 in order to better prepare a workforce looking to work and thrive in the outdoor industry.

The board will meet twice a year and guide the program, lending industry experience by helping develop curriculum, create design challenges for students and provide internship.

The board is comprised of industry veterans and representatives from companies such as Patagonia, Black Diamond, Altra Footwear, Cabela’s, Vista Outdoors, Backcountry.com, Cotopaxi, Burton, Klim, Klymit, Simms Fishing and ENVE Composites. Also serving on the board are Leslie Howa, founder of American Hardwear, now Mountain Hardwear, and Tom Adams, director of the Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation.
