2022-23 Resident Scholars program caps off peaceful, productive year May 5, 2023 By Collegeville Institute Leave a Comment It feels like it just started yesterday, but the 2022/23 resident scholars program concluded on April 28, after 8 months of dedicated research, writing, rest, and community building. Our 28 resident scholars for this year came from far and wide as Singapore, and as close by as Minneapolis. They included professors, artists, activists, religious leaders, and writers. Our group this year also included a new distinctive category, the Executive Director’s residency program. This invitational program was started, in part, to amplify underrepresented voices, especially the voices of people of color. Scholars stay with us to work on all sorts of projects, from books to doctoral theses to poetry and music. You can find them digging deep into their work, while also enjoying the beautiful apartments on our campus, walking around the gorgeous scenery of Stumpf Lake and our surrounding trails and woodlands, or enjoying Friday Night Dinners together at the Butler Center. This group really felt like a family. Each member was able to enjoy the warm hospitality of the Collegeville Institute while advancing their work, pursuing and pondering passions, or just taking a break from an increasingly busy world. Applications are now being accepted for the 2024/25 academic year. If you are interested in being a part of this group in the future, be sure to check out more information about our resident scholar programs here.
