Friends Council on Education offers workshops and peer network gatherings for faculty, administrators and trustees of our member schools as a way of strengthening the ethos and dynamic relative to Quaker education.

Our programs are highly experiential . . .

We ask that people register for our programs with a clear commitment to arrive on time and stay the full span of the seminar. Each person's part in building community and creating the workshop's tone and content is crucial. For residential programs staying overnight is encouraged for all, as fellowship and community building are part of the experience. Participants often report learning as much or more from each other as from the facilitators, which is really the point.
