Mid-South Region

Welcome to the AEE Mid-South Region!

      

About Us

The Mid-South Region is comprised of the U.S. states of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and most of Mexico. Throughout the region, we are active in developing and promoting experiential education in a variety of settings: schools and colleges, therapeutic programs, corporate training centers, outdoor and adventure education programs, etc.

We are a diverse region rich in human and biodiversity, and we are committed to promoting the vision of AEE, which is to contribute to making a more just and compassionate world by transforming education. By forming partnerships with other organizations that share our vision, AEE is taking the lead in advocating for experiential education worldwide.

In the name of the entire Mid-South region, I encourage you to take part in our conferences and local events and activities, as we're sure you'll find lots of opportunities for networking, professional development, and personal growth. I also invite you to join AEE and benefit from this ever-growing international community.

Sincerely,

Damian Matt
Chair / Mid-South Region
