New York Times Talk Lunches

Join the conversation by attending a New York Times Talk or Issues to Action event. Students, faculty, and staff are welcome. These discussions are a way to get students more engaged with local, regional, national, and/or international occurrences. 

New York Times Talks

The New York Times Talks series brings students, faculty and staff together in meaningful conversations about some of the latest topics in the local, national, and international news. Attendees are encouraged to be active participants in the conversation, as well as have an open mind and be respectful of other’s thoughts, opinions, and ideas. Lunch and beverages are provided at each of the Talks (when in-person).
