First Friday Faculty Club Lunch Series
About the First Friday Faculty Club Series:
This series has been created to foster open discussion, collaboration,
and collegiality among faculty across the college. Faculty members are
invited to have a buffet lunch, and learn about a colleague's work and
research interests in an informal setting. The talks are designed to be
accessible to all audiences and serve to provide a flavor of an area of
scholarship and its impact on society. We hope that all faculty members
will consider participating in this ongoing program which is sponsored
by the Center for Science in Society.
The talks with lunch provided are held on the first Friday of every month during the academic year. The buffet lunch at Wyndham is free and available from 11:45 am until 1:30 pm. The presentations are for ~20 min starting at 12:10 pm and followed by discussion. We hope to see you there.
Those interested in giving a presentation at a future lunch should contact Liz McCormack (emccorma).
