In the 2020-21 academic year, following Swarthmore College’s COVID-19 protocols, we have chosen to suspend our Second Tuesday Cafe series for the entire academic year. Our leadership team felt that while some form of online format for Second Tuesday was possible, we believe both that the in-person nature of the cafes was important to their success and that it is crucial to limit the amount of time that faculty and staff spend on-line to more essential or mission-critical purposes.
We expect 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.
