Focused on imaginative, effective teaching, CAFE dialogues draw faculty from a range of disciplines, inviting colleagues to learn from each another by sharing essential and emerging tools to nurture and challenge students. CAFE helps facilitate an education that allows students to address real-world problems and serve not only their community, but also the world as competent, conscientious, and compassionate individuals.
Below are series of CAFE talks grouped by topics and themes. If you'd like us to consider a specific topic, please reach out to email@example.com.
