Join a professor for dinner at their home or at a restaurant with a small group of your classmates for an engaged discussion and delicious meal. Each dinner will begin by discussing and responding to a reading provided by the hosting professor. Students will be assigned this brief reading prior to the dinner and will be expected to have read it, as it will be the basis of conversation for the dinner.
These salon-style events will be hosted by multiple professors over the course of the school year, and will center on themes of politics, identity, and justice.
Dinner with a Professor is open to all students at Wake Forest University.
