Recurring Events

Faculty Chats: Graduate Student Series
5:30PM-6:30PM, Select Mondays 

Faculty chats are informal conversations between Latin American, Latino, Latine, Latinx and Latina faculty and graduate students over dinner. Faculty are encouraged to talk about their academic journey as a related to their intersectional identities. Often times, graduate students comment on being “the only one” in their departments. We hope these dinners intervene in the lack of representation of BIPOC in academe and further a sense of community, belonging and inclusiveness on campus. Capacity is limited. Dinner Provided.
