Brown Bag Speaker Series F19

Posted on Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

Mark your calendars!

We’re letting you know about a great event run by our department to facilitate community, collaboration and learning over lunch. The Brown Bag Speaker Series is a weekly opportunity to meet faculty and professionals in your field and to broaden your geographical knowledge. 

You are invited to bring your lunch and come for a great opportunity for networking, research insights, and free coffee. Fridays starting on September 20th (Hutt 234) include the enclosed speaker line up, and more will be added and communicated as confirmed. The events continue into the new year and there are some great speakers booked. 

Calendar invites will be coming soon for the Brown Bag Speaker Series. 

See you for lunch!
