Lunch and Learn Series
In partnership with the NASPA Journal about Women in Higher Education (NJAWHE), the Center for Women is excited to host a series of live virtual conversations centered on recent journal publications. These Lunch and Learn sessions will be hosted on the lunch hour every other month and will feature an opportunity for participants to interact with the author(s) and discuss current issues in a video chat format. In an effort to create meaningful dialogue, participation is limited to the first 25 who register to participate. Participants are asked to review the article prior to attending the program to best engage with conversation. Topics and authors will shift every other month and this page will continue to be updated with the most current information
This is free benefit for NASPA members. To participate, please complete the application below; participation is limited to first come, first serve and will close once the event is at capacity. As this program is popular and wait lists are expected, please only register if you are able to fully commit to attending.
