Swarthmore College

Aligned with Swarthmore College’s COVID-19 protocols, we are continuing to evaluate our plans for the Second Tuesday Cafe series for the 2021-22 academic year. While we think some form of online format for Second Tuesday is possible, our leadership team believes that the in-person nature of the cafes is important to their success and that it is crucial to limit the amount of time that faculty and staff spend online to more essential or mission-critical purposes.

We hope at some point we will be able to return to hosting the series in 2021-22. We are likely to reprise our Quizzo-style format from the 2019-20 academic year, which we think worked very well.

When operating normally, Second Tuesday cafes are held from noon to 1 p.m. in the Scheuer Room of Kohlberg Hall. All faculty and staff are invited to come together for a light lunch and some learning. Talks are aimed at a general audience and include plenty of time for Q&A.

Listen to past cafes.
