Lunch & Learn Series

In the fall of 2017, the Multicultural Student Center launched a series of inclusive practice workshops and presentations designed to provide students, faculty and staff members with information, tools, and practical tactics for working most effectively with students from a broad range of backgrounds and identity groups. The purpose of this initiative is to foster and sustain a welcoming environment as well as helping students find a sense of belonging at UMaine.

All meetings will be held in the Multicultural Student Center (unless otherwise noted) from 12-1 pm and lunch is provided. Please join us on the third floor, room 312 in the Memorial Union for some thought-provoking conversations! No RSVP needed!
