2019 IFO Faculty of Color Leadership Retreat

The IFO is hosting a leadership retreat for MinnState university faculty of color November 15-17 in Minneapolis. We envision an empowerment and teambuilding experience that will build IFO leadership capacity within our faculty of color. This will be an intensive retreat for which participants will be expected to be present for its entirety, which will start Friday afternoon, November 15 and end the night of November 16. However, participants will be welcome to stay in the retreat facility until November 17 if needed. All meals and housing will be provided and mileage reimbursed for participants.

Retreat work will focus on organizational and union leadership training for faculty of color, with an emphasis on faculty of color empowerment. However, we also hope to create an engaged team of faculty of color who will provide support for one another’s work through community building and cross-mentorship.

Budgetary constraints and the size of our retreat facility limits participant numbers. If you are available and interested in participating, please complete the linked application form. Early and mid-career faculty will receive selection priority, though faculty of color at any rank are welcome to apply. The application deadline is October 1. Notifications will be made by October 8.
