Lectures and Lunches

Lectures and Lunches

Faculty lectures and the Wednesday lunch series provide instructional staff with opportunities to share in conversations about their own and their colleagues' work. Faculty who have received college funding for a second semester of leave must present their work at either a Wednesday lunch or a faculty lecture in the year of their return. The Associate Provost coordinates both the faculty lectures and the Wednesday lunch series for instructional staff.

Faculty Lectures

Faculty lectures provide an opportunity for faculty to present recent or ongoing research to the Swarthmore Community. All lectures begin at 7:00pm and will be held in the atrium area in McCabe Library unless otherwise noted.
