First Generation, Next Generation: Learning Communities for Inclusive Excellence

October 28-30, 2015


Thank you to the workshop facilitators and participants at the 2014 retreat, “Full STEAM Ahead! Integrating the Arts and STEM Disciplines.” Here’s what participants had to say about their experience:

  • “The time to connect with colleagues was by far the best! All the ‘wayside’ conversations and leaning helped me immensely and I went back to my home institution with new ideas!”
  • “I love this retreat. It gives me time to think and clear my head.”
  • “Semi-structured time (team time, receptions, mealtimes) with colleagues from my home institution was fantastically useful.”
