Fall Retreats

The RCT Program holds annual retreats each fall. The retreats invite scholars and practitioners working in one of the program’s focal areas to lead students and the community in a workshop engaging their work and integrating it with our vision for conflict transformation. The annual retreats are an engaging way for students in the RCT program to get to know one another and learn contextually.
