Son Faculty at 2018 Retreat

2018 Faculty Retreat at Shell Island Resort

SON faculty came together to begin the 2018-2019 academic year at Shell Island Resort in Wrightsville Beach for this year's annual retreat. 

Faculty spent a productive day discussing the upcoming year with a focus on mentorship, faculty development, and research and scholarship. In addition, a portion of the retreat was dedicated to focusing and preparing for the school's upcoming CCNE accreditation site visit, with faculty participating in mock interviews. 

This was an excellent opportunity for existing faculty to meet and mingle with one of the SON's 10 new faculty members hired over this past summer. The retreat provided a time to commemorate the SON's accomplishments of this past year as well as prepare for the future ahead! 

Of course, the day did not go by without a little bit of fun. SON's new Interim Director Linda C. Pugh stated "We had a lot of laughs, and we all enjoyed relaxing a bit with our toes in the surf and sand".
