SwatTalks is an Alumni Council initiative to engage the broader Swarthmore community in free, virtual seminars featuring professors, students, and alumni excelling in their fields and sharing their knowledge and experience. Each seminar will last one hour and reach Swarthmore alumni and current parents around the world through ZOOM webinar technology. SwatTalks sessions will be recorded as permitted by the presenters.
