What is a PossePlus Retreat?

Posse Scholars at Vanderbilt University initiated the PossePlus Retreat. These Scholars had been making individual contributions to the campus, but they felt it was important they do something together as a Posse community to create a positive impact. These first Scholars worked with Posse staff to apply their training and create the PossePlus Retreat: a weekend of interactive, inspiring, challenging Posse-style workshops. During this weekend, a cross-section of the entire campus community, including students, faculty, and administrators, came together to talk about the issues affecting the university and to discuss ways to create change on campus. Those they invited to this forum, PossePlus, became an extension of the Posse community.

By creating a safe space for dialogue between campus community members who may not ordinarily interact with one another, Posse Scholars believed a positive change would
reverberate across the university. Today, the annual PossePlus Retreat is the biggest event that Posse sponsors on the campuses of all its university partners. Posse Scholars, Staff, Retreat Facilitators, Liaisons, and Mentors across the nation have run a series of incredible retreats tackling issues such as racism, sexuality, meritocracy, identity, and many more. The retreats have become an important forum for social, cultural, and political dialogue, creating a community for students and allowing many to be heard in a way they never were before.
