Lunch on Us

Join OIIR 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. During the Fall 2019 semester, LGBT Resource Center’s Quench program will be on hiatus and Lunch at La Casa will be held every-other-week.  Programs take place from noon to 1 pm (unless otherwise noted). Lunches are paid for in part by the Student Cultural Programming Fee. Click here to download a pdf of the Lunch on Us calendar
