Lunch Series: Lunch with Cathy Drennan

Introducing… a new WIC Lunch Series!

We are excited to announce and invite you to a new WIC lunch series with the female faculty in Chemistry! Each lunch will feature one professor, where it will be an open forum to get to know her better, hear about her journey, and discuss any topics of interest to the group. We do not have many opportunities to interact with the female faculty in an informal setting, so we hope you will all enjoy and take part in the lunch series!

Our first lunch will be with Cathy Drennan on Wednesday, June 11th from 12:30-1:30 pm in the Moore Room (6-321). Lunch will be provided, so if you would like to attend please RSVP by 5pm this Friday to If you have any dietary restrictions, please let us know in your RSVP.

Come with questions and topics you would like to talk about!
