RETREAT PROGRAM       

KEYNOTE ADDRESS – This year’s opening keynote and Q & A session from Indiana Humanities CEO Keira Amstutz, will explain how their team uses dialogue with communities to address issues, come together, and learn from one another. She will talk about three different models for campuses to use in their dialogue work and provide resources available from Indiana Humanities to implement them.

TRACK ONE is a deep-dive, day-long workshop from Dan Griffith and Carolyn Gentle-Genitty, IUPUI, will present Essential Tools for Communicating Across Differences. The workshop features a tool kit which includes a step-by-step guide to understanding and taking action in the 4 stages of dialogue. In order for you and your fellow participants to get the most out of this session, each participant is encouraged to prepare for the day by reading the provided materials before attending the workshop.

TRACKS TWO AND THREE consist of peer-led, concurrent workshops:

RETREAT Q & A

WHERE ARE WE MEETING AND WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

We will be holding the retreat at The Prindle Institute for Ethics in Greencastle, IN. We will be surrounded by nature in a casual, reflective space. Please feel free to dress comfortably!

WHAT HOTEL DO YOU RECOMMEND?

The Inn at DePauw & Event Center is nearby for those of you who need overnight accommodations.

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

We will provide a chance to sign up for consultations with ICC staff so members of our partner campuses can learn how to leverage the resources of ICC and get the most out of our partnership.

Participants will have a chance to join interest groups during lunchtime if they are interested in networking with colleagues around a specific topic. We are leaving space for the continuation of those conversations after lunch in addition to the concurrent sessions.

This event is a chance for faculty, staff, and students, of all levels of involvement in service-learning and community engagement, to hone their skills and leave rejuvenated and ready to work. Participants can attend a full-day, skill-building workshop or choose from a variety of workshops designed to enhance the work of practioners, faculty, and students alike.

The Retreat is also an opportunity for participants to connect with others from their region and their campus. We will provide a participant list as well as a list of campus liaisons, who are the main connections with Indiana Campus Compact.

HOW DOES THIS CONNECT WITH OTHER INDIANA CAMPUS COMPACT EVENTS?

This year’s retreat will kick-off Listen. Talk. Transform., a year-long look into the many forms of dialogue as a tool for crossing differences and improving lives in our communities. Programming will take place through the 18-19 Academic Year and culminate at the 2019 Service Engagement Summit.
