Food for Thought Lunchtime Series

Food for Thought Lunchtime Series

Food for Thought is a lunchtime presentation series designed to give students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to grow in community by sharing TEDtalk-style presentations on current projects, research, and areas of interest with the larger campus community. It occurs monthly, with two presenters giving 15-25 minute presentations and fielding questions from the audience. Presentations may range from academic papers to hands-on demonstrations to hobbies and interests.

Food for Thought is designed to highlight the high-caliber artistic and academic work that this campus fosters, while bringing students, faculty, and staff together to learn in a casual setting. In this way, the campus community forms new connections that may not have existed otherwise, breaking down some of the barriers that naturally form in a university environment. By facilitating these new relationships, UNCSA strengthens its campus community, and becomes better adapted to make an impact within and beyond the four walls of the University.

Presentation are in Eisenberg Social Hall, unless otherwise noted.
