FACULTY/STUDENT INTERACTION DINNER
The purpose of the Faculty/Student Interaction Dinner program is to facilitate informal communication between full-time faculty members and undergraduate students. Faculty members holding a full-time appointment at the rank of Lecturer in Discipline, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor are eligible to host a meal. In order to achieve the goal of fostering informal relationships, the maximum number of students that can be hosted at any meal is 15; the majority of the students attending must be undergraduates. These meals may take place at either the faculty member’s home or at an on-campus site (found by the faculty member). For those meals, you must submit an order to us for a meal from one of our participating vendors. In addition, one of our most popular choices is the buffet at Faculty House, which is available for lunch only. If you are interested in holding your meal at Faculty House, we strongly urge you to choose a date and get your request to us as early as possible to make sure you get your desired date.
We will begin accepting requests to schedule meals for the fall semester on Monday, September 17, 2018. The first day to host a meal is Monday, September 24, 2018.
In order to accommodate the growing popularity of the program, we must ask that you submit your request well in advance. For the bulk of the semester, the requirement is to submit 5 business days in advance. However, due to the large number of requests we receive at the end of the term, the last day to submit is Friday, November 16, 2018. Meals are not permitted during the last week of classes, the reading period or finals week. The final date to host a meal for the Fall 2018 semester is Monday, December 3, 2018.
