Community Learning Series

Our series of workshop lunches spotlight a wide range of topics of interest to the SMU community. These noon sessions are informal and open to all members of the University community. The lectures and workshops extend and expand on the classroom curriculum, and promote wellness and inclusivity in the faculty and student body. Presenters come from the Samuel Merritt and Greater Bay Area community, and include faculty and staff as well as students.
