Cookies and Conversation planned for Tuesday

by University Communications,

All Willamette students invited to join university leaders for this monthly event.

Each month Willamette’s senior leaders will gather for casual conversation with students at The Bistro — and the senior leaders are buying the cookies and coffee.

The new “Cookies and Conversation” events are aimed at creating more informal opportunities for students in all schools to meet and chat with Willamette’s senior leaders. The plan is to host these events monthly and vary the date and time to accommodate different class schedules.

President Thorsett and Vice President of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Jade Aguilar will be on hand during the first event on Oct. 17 from 8:30–10 a.m.
