What are TableTalks? A specific conversation allowing attendees to hear different perspectives on a particular topic. TableTalks are facilitated by TableTalk members or any University student, faculty member, or professional who is knowledgeable about the specific topic of the week. TableTalks invite anyone to engage in the event discussion that goes beyond small talk, surrounding the particular topic of the evening. These events happen over a meal, on campus for students to eat, sit with someone new, listen, and grow.
