Lunch on Us

Join OIIR every weekday for a noontime discussion, and learn something new. Featuring speakers, panels, and resources at the University of Illinois, all lunches introduce you to the cultures, histories, and societal issues that the diverse communities of our campus face.

Programs take place from noon to 1 pm. Lunches are paid for in part by the Student Cultural Programming Fee.
