Scholarly Writing Retreat – Only a Few Spots Left

submitted by pippert@augsburg.edu

Jessica Nathanson Scholarly Writing Retreat
Wednesday, May 16 – Friday, May 18, 2018
Dunrovin Christian Brothers Retreat Center

Located on 50 scenic acres of national park in Marine on Saint Croix, Dunrovin’s beautiful wooded grounds are a peaceful, yet professional, setting for group meetings, private getaways, youth or adult groups, and day or overnight retreats.

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 1:00 pm on Wednesday and ends at 1:00 pm on Friday. Space is limited to full-time faculty members.

Questions? Please contact the Center for Teaching and Learning ctl@augsburg.edu
