Second decade Google group:

Leadership Lunch and Learn webinars:
Leadership Lunch and Learn is a webinar series conceptualized and executed by the Class of 2004 and the Office of Alumni Affairs. Leadership Lunch and Learn aims to serve the needs of alumni in the second decade - those 10-20 years past graduation. Since this cohort is very busy in their family lives and careers, we want to make it easy for them to engage with the university. Thereby we create programming that comes to them at a convenient place (their computer) at a convenient time (lunchtime, Eastern Time). The targeted topics are ones that are particularly relevant to second decade alumni and feature expert speakers. While the series is specifically marketed to second decade alumni, anyone is welcome to attend.
