Faculty Writing Retreat

Loyola’s Mission Integration team has created a new opportunity for faculty growing out of our listening to you, and our relationships with mission offices at some of our sister Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities schools. The idea is simple – provide faculty with a few days away at the university’s expense to focus on their own individual writing projects – whatever they may be – but in the context of Loyola’s mission and community. While most of your time will be unscheduled and private, the group will come together each morning for a brief time of spiritual focus and each evening socially and to do some communal sharing and reflection on our vocation as educators and scholars.
