We are pleased to announce that Academic Affairs will sponsor the 2022 Faculty Writing Retreat this May 23 – 26 at the Beaver Hollow Conference Center in Java, NY. Faculty scholarship is critical to the academic excellence of Canisius, and time for scholarship has been far too lean in the past two years. With this opportunity, we hope to provide the gift of time and recognize the importance of scholarship at the college.

Meals, snacks and beverages will be provided. Participants will have a private room and bathroom with plenty of space to work and find inspiration in this beautiful natural setting. We will arrive the afternoon of Monday, May 23 and depart after lunch on Thursday, May 26. You are welcome to book additional time at your expense. We ask that you plan to come alone so that colleagueship among members of the group can be strengthened. 

Each day, the only planned events will be dinner and a happy hour, during which we will share our work with each other. The rest of the time on the retreat will be to spend on scholarship/writing. We hope that the retreat gives a chance to further our scholarly and creative projects as well as get to know our colleagues a bit better.

Applications are due by Monday, April 18th. Please click here to complete the brief application process.
