Purpose Retreat

August 25, 2021 - August 27, 2021

To coincide with the launch of the new School for Public Purpose and Professional Advancement, sophomores are invited to return to campus early for the first-ever Purpose Retreat. Participating students will be among the first to learn about AlbionEngage, our new initiative for purpose-driven experiential learning and professional development. Students will also have the opportunity to connect with their class, hear from inspiring speakers, and win limited edition Albion swag.

The retreat is open to all sophomores. Register at albion.edu/purpose-retreat by Friday, August 13.
