Academic Staff Chats

An academic staff chat is a frank, open discussion with a small group of your colleagues on a particular topic. Some topics may include a speaker or panel prior to ample discussion time. All sessions are free of charge.

All sessions meet from 11:30am – 1:00pm in Union South, unless otherwise noted below. Registration is limited to 30 participants to ensure a fruitful small group discussion.
