Women in Science & Engineering Lunch Bunch
The Women in Science & Engineering Lunch Bunch is a group of faculty, including instructors and research faculty, from the Colleges of Science, Mines, and Engineering. We meet informally for lunch every other month during the school year, with a speaker or discussion leader on topics of interest to women faculty. This is an opportunity to meet colleagues outside of your own department, for fun, camaraderie, or even possible collaboration. All new women faculty are added to the distribution list, or contact Cindy Furse at email@example.com.
