Brown Bag Lecture Series

Where and when: Morgan Room, Aiken Hall, Wednesdays & Fridays, 12:30 p.m.-2 p.m.

To volunteer for a brown bag talk, please contact Paula Olsen, olsen@champlain.edu

The Champlain College Library and Core division will be hosting a Brown Bag Lecture series this fall.  The talks/lectures will take place during the lunch hour—hence, the name brown bag lecture series—in the Morgan Room.  Historically, this informative and informal series was given the name Brown Bag because attendees would often bring their lunches, which, in the U.S., are often packed in brown paper bags. Brown bag lectures usually run an hour or so.

The goal of our BBs is to provide a platform for faculty and staff to update and share with the Champlain College community their new or ongoing research in a voluntary and informal setting.  The talk is generally followed by audience questions and discussion.

Brown Bag lectures are commonly held at schools, universities, and governmental institutions where lectures, presentations, and talks about ongoing research inform and engage the community at large.  Outside presenters and guests are welcome.
