University Advancement Diversity Brown Bag Lunches
University Advancement kicked off its first brown bag lunch on January 25, 2010 as part of their divisional diversity goals.
The divisional initiative is modeled on a successful series of diversity brown bag lunches held in 2009 in the development office.
Dr. Terry Cooney, dean, College of Liberal Arts and Erika Schon, director, Baltimore Hebrew Institute (BHI) were the guest speakers. Lunch conversation focused on religious studies that are part of the Towson curriculum as well as BHI.
More than 40 members of the University Advancement staff attended the first quarterly lunch. Dr. Gary Rubin, UA vice president said, “The benefits of bringing the entire division together to look at campus diversity issues, projects and programs are beneficial on many levels. The lunches provide educational opportunities for staff, social interaction across departments, and a sharing of perspectives related to diversity.” University Advancement includes development, marketing, alumni relations, special events, and the foundation office.
