Swarthmore College

Aligned with Swarthmore College’s COVID-19 protocols and the continuously evolving nature of the pandemic, we have suspended our plans for the Second Tuesday Cafe series for the 2021-22 academic year. We believe 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 2022-23. 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.

Recordings of many of the past Second Tuesday cafes are available.
