Lunch and Learn

Freshly-cooked food

Lunch and Learn is an event series featuring seminar-style conversations about vocation and the Christian liberal arts over a catered meal. 

Each Lunch and Learn event highlights an original essay by a CFI Scholar. Attendees are expected to read the essay prior to the event and come prepared to engage in conversation. The featured scholar offers framing remarks to open the program before hosting a seminar style discussion for the bulk of the time. 

Faculty who have not otherwise engaged with CFI programs will find Lunch and Learn events an easy way to start. Please contact Erin McCord Savidge with questions regarding the Lunch and Learn program. All faculty are invited to RSVP.
