Ocotillo Retreats

The first Ocotillo gathering was a retreat in 1988 to Mormon Lake in Northern Arizona. Each year since, Ocotillo has convened a year-end retreat, sometimes in town, and sometimes away, as an opportunity for Maricopa faculty and staff to spend concentrated time reviewing technology issues, and to develop directions for the next academic year.
