Tapping Into the Mission: Promoting and Sustaining Faculty Dialogue about Mission at Assumption College

This proposal seeks to promote constructive dialogue about Catholic mission that is inclusive of faculty members from diverse disciplines. To do so, we will organize a mini-retreat modeled after our own experience at Collegium. The event will commence with a Friday evening gathering of 20-28 faculty members followed by a day-long, off-campus retreat featuring an invited speaker, small group discussions of selected readings, and time for prayer and reflection. The retreat will kickoff a new discussion series, “Tapping into the Mission,” that will sustain conversation about the ways faculty members contribute to and promote the mission of Assumption College.
