Come in from the cold with other graduate students and postdocs for a day of toasty conversations to spark your curiosity about learning and teaching.

One of the themes at the Searle Center this year has been "co-creation" as a signature equitable practice. So, for the 2024 Winter Retreat, we invite participants to co-create some of the agenda with us in an "unconference"-inspired format. Together, you will collaboratively identify the learning and teaching topics most interesting to you.

Because the goal of the Winter Retreat is to be participant-driven, we are capping registration at 25 people but will offer it twice to accommodate more people.

Lunch and hot chocolate bar will be provided.
