2019 Faculty & Staff Retreat on Vocation
Date & Location TBD
Take a break from work
Overnight vocational retreats are hosted at facilities in nature allowing for a chance to get away for the night. On-campus retreats allow the convenience and ease for faculty and staff who cannot commit to an overnight trip. The retreat structure allows time for reflection, action, and relaxing conversation.
Pathway to your purpose
Designed specifically for faculty and staff, the vocational retreat provides retreatants an opportunity to delve deep into their values to better understand how to craft meaning and a vocational journey. The faculty/staff retreats are focused on your individual journey as professionals but may assist you in helping students on their paths.
Engage in community
A key piece of the vocational retreat is engagement and reflection within community. Retreatants develop relationships with fellow staff and faculty while examining their lives, purpose, and meaning.
