Mission Based Staff Retreat

The mission-focused staff retreat seeks to help University administrators and staff members deepen their understanding of and commitment to the Catholic and Marianist mission of the University of Dayton.

The retreat provides the opportunity to support, strengthen and exemplify our Catholic and Marianist identity. It serves as a means to continue the orientation to the University for relatively new staff persons and provides an opportunity to reinforce and deepen the understanding and articulation of the mission for more veteran staff members.  

The mission-focused staff retreat is an overnight experience held at Bergamo Center in June each year.  

Reading materials, discussion leaders, presentations, meals, and inclusive prayer is incorporated.  Departments will be asked to supplement retreat costs with a nominal financial contribution.  

Questions? Contact Allison Leigh, Director of Marianist Strategies.
