Scholars Retreat


The CCCU in partnership with the Issachar Fund is pleased to provide CCCU scholars and artists with a retreat opportunity in a cottage near Lake Michigan for the purpose of research, reflection, writing, and production of scholarship or creative work in one of the Issachar Fund's four areas of inquiry:

These subject areas may be addressed from within any academic discipline.  The retreat may be for as little as a six-week period, or as long as the full academic year.

In addition to benefits to the scholar, the scholar's home institution will receive a grant to help defray the institutional costs associated with providing the participant with a leave from teaching and administration.
