Plan an Event

In addition to regularly scheduled conferences, the consortium also arranges a limited number of faculty development workshops for institutions interested in bringing RTTP to their campus. Coordinated by the RTTP Program Office at Barnard College, we offer various configurations to accommodate the needs of host institutions, ranging from single-day introductory seminars to two- and four-day intensive workshops.

If you are interested in setting up a campus workshop please send an email to reacting@barnard.edu. In this email please include location, conference duration and number of participant. As quickly as we are able we will return a tenative schedule and cost estimate for your consideration.
