Posse Plus Retreat (PPR)

The Posse Foundation facilitates an annual weekend-long PossePlus Retreat every January, attended by Posse scholars, their guests, mentors,  faculty, and administrators.

The PossePlus retreat was started at Vanderbilt by the first Posse scholars who felt it was important to do something that would create a positive impact for the campus community. Posse scholars and staff worked closely to create The PossePlus Retreat, a weekend of interactive and challenging discussions and workshops designed to tackle important societal issues.  Approximately one hundred Posse scholars and their guests attend the retreats which are held at the Joe C. Davis YMCA Outdoor Center in Nashville.  The retreats have dealt with such themes as race, class, gender, social responsibility, politics, culture, and education.
