Conversation Café

As part of the Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Relations (OIIR) Lunch on Us series, DiversityEd hosts the Conversation Café lunch series every 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month during the semester. Our topics reflect the range of important and emerging issues on diversity and social justice on campus and beyond. Conversation Cafe is paid for in part by Student Cultural Programming Fee.

All programs are from noon-1 p.m. on Fridays. For the Spring 2019 series, Conversation Cafe will be hosted at the Women's Resources Center, 616 E. Green St., Suite 202 unless otherwise specified.
