Posse Plus Retreat 2018: Hope, Hate & Race in the United States

February 9th-11th

Watson Homestead Conference and Retreat Center Painted Post, NY

FREE RSVP required. Sign up here: https://cornell2018ppr.eventbrite.com/

RSVP deadline: February 1st, 2018

If you have any questions, please contact Carlo Lindo posse@cornell.edu


The topic of this year’s retreat is Hope, Hate & Race in the US. Lodging and meals are provided, as well as transportation.


Posse Scholars from around the country are comfortable and familiar with group activities, 1-on-1 conversations, and the type of conversations happening at the collegiate level about social, political, national, or international topics. The Posse Plus Retreat (“PPR”) was started about 20 years ago when Scholars at Vanderbilt University decided they wanted to have those types of conversations with their non-Posse peers, faculty, and staff. Hence, “Posse Plus.” That is how the PPR was formed, and why it still stands as a unique opportunity to connect, converse, and learn from those in our university community.


This is not only a space to hear what students think about this particular topic, but also a space to share your own opinions and have in depth discussions with a variety of people. I know that can make one feel vulnerable and seem out of the norm here at Cornell, but the goal of the PPR is to allow for a space that wouldn’t otherwise exist to have those types of conversations with students, faculty, staff and others in the Cornell Community.


The other piece to note is this retreat takes place over three days-the evening of February 9th to the afternoon of February 11th.


The deadline to RSVP is February 1st. I hope you consider the invitation. I look forward to seeing you there.


This event is open to any and all Cornell affiliated students, faculty, staff, etc. If you know a graduate student, professor, director, coach, or anyone that should be invited to this event, please send me their contact information.
