The Faculty Retweet


From last year’s faculty retreat. What excellent ideas can we expect from this year’s meeting?

The semester is almost upon us and, for us faculty, that can mean only one thing: the annual Faculty Retreat. On Monday, all of the department’s faculty will hunker down in the University Club, drink coffee, eat the buffet, and think hard about the future. It’s a time of planning, dreaming, and strategery. It’s a time when we sit down as a department and figure out what we want to accomplish this year.

Want to know what we’re up to? Want the scoop on what we’re planning for 2014-2015? Just curious how the food is? Follow our Twitter feed, @StudyReligion, to get live updates from the Red Room of the University Club throughout the day Monday.
