The Edge for Scholars Retreat offers early career researchers and their mentors an energizing mix of talks and breakout sessions focused on building bridges with peers, mentors, and new colleagues.

After a delicious camp lunch and good conversation, spend an afternoon creating shared connections with traditional camp activities including kayaking, rock climbing, beach and water slides.

Dress casual and bring your sense of adventure (and a change of clothes).

What a great way to start the academic year - 10/10!

Wonderful day! I met several junior investigators with whom I might never have come into contact.

Really great to get away from campus and have a day to zoom out and think about career big picture.
