Energizing Breakfast Club

The Division of Business and Economics and the Division of Communication, History, and Politics launch the Energizing Breakfast Club (EBC)

The Energizing Breakfast Club provides a platform for faculty members to share their emerging research projects and discuss new ideas in an informal breakfast setting. EBC meetings usually begin with a 20 to 30 minutes presentation by a faculty member and are followed by a constructive discussion, which aims at providing feedback to the presenters. Designed to facilitate in-person discussions among colleagues from various disciplines, the EBC brings together Coffee, Croissants, and new ideas!
