The PossePlus Retreat
The PossePlus Retreat was started by the first Posses at Vanderbilt University who felt it was important to do something that would create a positive impact for the campus community. These first Posse Scholars worked closely with Posse staff to create The PossePlus Retreat, a weekend of interactive and challenging workshops designed to tackle important national and campus issues. In the past, retreats have dealt with themes of race, meritocracy, class, gender, power, social responsibility, education just to name a few previous topics. During a PossePlus Retreat weekend, a cross section of the campus community—students, faculty and administrators come together to talk about the topic on a national, campus and personal level. By creating a safe space for dialogue between campus community members who may not ordinarily interact with one another, retreats today have become an important forum to engage in social, cultural and political issues.
