via ZOOM: please check SSU’s Moodle page for the link

SSU’s Virtual Coffee Talks is a 2021 initiative from the Academic Affairs Office with the purpose of bringing together faculty and students from different backgrounds and interests within the University. At each meeting, a faculty member presents their recent work in progress, such as research or other critical-thinking concepts, in an informal, constructive atmosphere. These meetings yield valuable feedback for the presenters, while also informing the participants about critical research or other ideas and concepts being explored and discussed in today’s society.

Please note that the University will not record these meetings and participants will be able to choose their video on or off.
