Fall Leadership Retreat

Monday, September 19, 2016
8:00 a.m. — 5:00 p.m.
Ford Alumni Center

The Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs will host the annual Fall Leadership Retreat on September 19, 2016. This year's retreat covers university strategic priorities for the upcoming year and matters pertinent to leadership at the University of Oregon. The retreat will have a conference-style format with presentations for all attendees and breakout sessions interspersed throughout the day. Some breakout sessions are required for those new to administrative roles.

The University of Oregon participates in the Common Reading program. In order to participate in the learning that the broader student community will be taking part in this year, each attendee is asked to read Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. There will be a discussion about the book during the lunch session. You may pick up your copy in the Academic Affairs office in 207 Johnson Hall.
