Conversation-Community-Collegiality, C3 University Lunches Scheduled

“We thought it would be nice to provide an opportunity for relaxed interaction across campus,” says Faith Morrison, member of the Steering Committee for the C-Cubed (Conversation-Community-Collegiality University Lunches) group. Norma Veurink adds “In our teaching and support roles with students, we always seem to be in discharge mode. We need a venue to recharge with colleagues.” Nilufer Onder contacted Theresa Coleman-Kaiser, who, it turns out, was already working with a pair of University Senators on a related idea. It all came together for Thursdays and Fridays this semester.

“It,” that came together is the C-Cubed University Lunches set to start February 12 and 13 in MUB B001 (ground floor; former billiards room). Faculty, staff, and their guests are invited to buy lunch (buffet will be offered) or bring their lunch to room MUB-B001 on Thursdays and Fridays and to share conversation and lunchtime with colleagues. “We’re providing the invitation, table cloths, a cash buffet, and Theresa has arranged for the university provide a few perks (complimentary coffee, tea, cookies, and fruit),” says Morrison. “All the attendees need to bring is conversation, community, and collegiality (C3)!”

The committee hopes that the seed planted through these twice-weekly C-Cubed lunches will develop into an ongoing congenial setting for informal gatherings. For now, the lunches will be offered on Thursdays and Fridays through the end of the spring semester. The price of the buffet lunch will be $10 and the menu will vary. Brown-baggers are welcome, as are those who wish to purchase lunch from the MUB Commons or the Khana Khazana on Fridays. The lunch event is from 11:30-1:30 both days. All faculty and staff and their guests are welcome.

Contact any member of the steering committee if you have questions or suggestions.
