Who is this program for?
The Knowledge to Action Retreat will help any Ithaca College student develop skills and knowledge to drive positive social change for more socially just communities. No matter the issue or cause you are advocating for, it takes leadership to create change. All Ithaca College students belong to a multitude of different lived experiences including areas of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status and many more. Therefore, we are looking for a group of people that come from many different lived experiences who want to participate. Every Ithaca College student is eligible and highly encouraged to register.
What are the logistics of this event?
The 2023 retreat will take place on Saturday, November 4 in Auburn, NY. We will tour the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park, visit the NYS Equal Rights Heritage Center and have a full afternoon of lunch and activities at the event space at Prison City Brewing. The bus will leave campus at 9:00am and return to campus at 6:00pm. Meals, transportation, and all materials are provided for attendees, so there is no fee to participate. The retreat will count for three Leading in a Diverse World sessions in the Student Leadership Institute.
