Professional Development Retreats

Each year, the New York Six offers a number of professional and leadership development programs for faculty.

Early Career Faculty Retreat

To be offered for the first time in Spring 2021, this highly interactive retreat will give new faculty the opportunity to cultivate a peer network, get input from others outside of their home institution, have time to reflect on their career arc, and build scholarly communities outside of their home institution. Faculty who have full-time, tenure-track positions and are in the first three years of their appointments will be welcome to attend. 


New Department Chairs Leadership Development Retreat

First offered in 2017, the New York Six offers a biennial leadership development retreat for new department chairs. At the retreat, the participants work with experienced department chairs to develop practical management skills, including improved organization and communication, goal setting, and motivating and mentoring department faculty.
