Network & Knowledge Connection

The Graduate School's Network & Knowledge Luncheon

The Network & Knowledge Luncheon is open to all graduate students and meets monthly during the Fall and Spring semesters from 12:15pm-1:30pm. We typically enjoy lunch (this is a free meal!), discuss the needs, concerns, and ideas of graduate students and get to know one another better. Occasionally we will have guest speakers on topics of your choice. Every meeting is open to all graduate students, so everyone should feel free to join us if you can. It would be great to have representation from all the graduate programs.
