Swarthmore College

Tuesday Cafes are a chance for faculty and staff 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. 

Tuesday Cafe’s current format is a cross between Vogue’s 73 questions and a Reddit “Ask Me Anything.” Each informal interview session will feature a faculty or staff member answering questions about what they do (and don’t do) every day. We hope it will be a fun and interesting way to learn about the profound and mundane dimensions of the different kinds of work done at Swarthmore. 

Open to all Swarthmore faculty and staff.
