Integrating Boyer into Your Institutional Culture: An Executive Retreat

Explore New Ideas. Explore the Possibilities. Explore our Asheville.

JUNE 25-27, 2012


We invite you to scenic Asheville, N.C. to embark on a journey of discovery and development along with other institutional teams from across the country who share an interest in the Boyer model of scholarship. This retreat will give your team of faculty, staff, administrators and other stakeholders the time, tools, and experience to develop a plan for integrating the Boyer model into your institutional culture. Faculty roles and rewards will constitute a major focus of the retreat as you incorporate Boyer's four scholarships--discovery, integration, application, and teaching--into your institution's mission, goals, and processes. Come prepared to work and leave with real results.
