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.”

SAVE THE DATE: next year’s retreat will be October 28-30, 2015
