This one-day, off-campus retreat will offer faculty and staff the opportunity to dive into a new project or revive a dormant one. We’ll travel to idyllic Woolman Hill in nearby Deerfield for a break from distractions and a peaceful environment to think, plan, read, write and reflect. At 9 a.m., participants will gather together to set, share and discuss individual goals both for the day and for the summer. The remainder of the morning will be writing time. We’ll break for a catered lunch, then continue writing. At the end of the day, we’ll reflect on the day’s progress and the intentions for the summer.
Open to current faculty and staff of Amherst College. Space is limited, so kindly R.S.V.P. by May 24.
All Amherst College staff and faculty members are invited to the 2018 Employee Picnic! We hope that you will join us for great food, music, prizes, recognition awards and lots of opportunities to have fun with colleagues.
