In 2002, the College of Arts and Sciences' Dean and his Advisory Board initiated the first Great Conversations dinner in order to bring community guests together with award-winning research and teaching faculty for an evening of dining and conversation.
Much like a dinner party, alumni and community friends gather at tables of eight to ten to discuss "hot topics" of College research. Each table's discussion is led by a College of Arts and Sciences faculty member, administrator or alumnus with special expertise on a topic selected by guests in advance.
Through Great Conversations, we hope you gain:
- A knowledge of the far-reaching research taking place at the University of Memphis, one of America's great metropolitan research universities;
- An understanding of how the College of Arts and Sciences is improving the quality of life in Memphis and the Mid-South through strategic research programs; and
- A desire to support the students and faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences.
