Hawkeye Lunch and Learn

The Provost’s Office of Outreach and Engagement debuted the Hawkeye Lunch and Learn lecture series in January 2014 at the UI John and Mary Pappajohn Education Center in Des Moines. Linda Snetselaar, Associate Provost for Outreach and Engagement stated “We want to highlight ways the university is working with partners across the state, strengthening existing relationships and creating new ones”.

The Hawkeye Lunch and Learn events are offered monthly in Des Moines. Since the debut earlier this year, the lecture series has grown and currently offers lectures in the Iowa City area and at Rotaries across the state. 

The lecture series is designed to connect Iowa communities, university faculty, government, and industry leaders. The UI Provost's Office of Outreach & Engagement sponsors the series. For questions regarding the Hawkeye Lunch and Learn events, please contact Outreach and Engagement Liaison Erika Christiansen at 319-335-0219.
