ABOUT THE RETREAT

Without a doubt, this upcoming school year is going to be a challenging one for colleges and universities. With candidates vying for votes, culture wars being waged, international relations remaining volatile, and a 24-hour news cycle in hyperdrive, tensions will be running high and campus activism is expected to intensify.

Don’t despair!  The mountains are calling you!

Join us in the lovely resort town of Breckenridge, Colorado, for our Crisis Leadership Retreat.  With a special focus on Campus Unrest, this workshop is a perfect opportunity to help you recharge your spirits, refresh your skills, and recalibrate your institution’s approach to campus unrest.
