Sunday, May 19-Tuesday, May 21 | Jessica Nathanson Scholarly Writing Retreat | Dunrovin Retreat Center, Marine on St. Croix, MN

Do you wish you had uninterrupted time to write/work on scholarship? If so, you will want to take advantage of the annual Jessica Nathanson Scholarly Writing Retreat. Jess established a tradition of allowing faculty and academic staff time away from campus to focus entirely on scholarship. There is no schedule for this retreat – it is simply time and space to work on scholarship. The Provost and the Center for Teaching and Learning will cover the cost of the retreat. We ask that you commit to being present on all three days of the event. Our time begins at 1pm on Sunday and ends at 1pm on Tuesday. Space is limited to full-time faculty members.
