Brown Bag Discussions

What is a Brown Bag?

A brown bag lunch or seminar is generally a scholarly exchange session during a lunch break and typically runs an hour. Because attendees bring their lunches packed in brown paper bags, hence the name “brown bag lunch session.” Brown bag sessions are good opportunities for faculty members, outside speakers and graduate students to discuss their ongoing research, bounce ideas off one another, find potential research collaborators and eventually build the research culture in our college.
