The Saybrook Residential Conference

Our Residential Conferences are a safe place for students and faculty to explore their fields of study, as well as their own personal experiences. The most important thing is to be open to the views of others while remaining vocal about your own. Be comforted in knowing that whatever you decide to share, you will have people to support you.

Residential Conferences are an integral part of the community at Saybrook University. Each conference is a new opportunity to explore and celebrate yourself as well as the world around you.​
