Every year, The Posse Foundation and Posse Scholars facilitate an annual weekend-long PossePlus Retreat attended by members of the larger student body, faculty and administration, with the goal of discussing an important campus issue identified by Posse Scholars. These annual retreats are made possible by Posse’s incredible partner colleges and universities such as Tulane University.

Please join us to share information regarding topics of academic access. Equity Thursdays will meet in Cudd Hall Room 203.  Sessions will focus on cutting edge research, distinctive academic opportunities and offer a forum for reflection on the intersection of identity and the academic experience. The Center for Academic Equity will serve lunch from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM.
