HCI & Design at the University of Washington
The first week of each quarter focuses on communication and networking within the DUB community. Instead of a seminar speaker, we hold a DUB faculty meeting and coordinate student small group lunches. See below for appropriate details.
1) DUB Faculty Meeting
DUB faculty meetings are held during the normal DUB time (i.e., Wednesday at 12:00) in CSE 691 (i.e., Gates Commons). Lunch is provided. When there are clear agenda items, those will be advertised on the dub-faculty mailing list.
2) Student Group Lunches
The heart of the DUB community is our diversity of perspectives, bringing together people and ideas that might otherwise be hidden in our individual units. We want everybody in DUB to seek out some new DUB friends for lunch. We have created a speadsheet to help you find a group, and where you need to enter your group and your tweet to coordinate reimbursement. For reimbursement sanity, we will coordinate with the first person listed in each group.
Have lunch in a group of 4 DUB people who all add something different (e.g., different departments, different research advisors, different disciplinary background, different years in their program). You decide what brings different perspectives to your DUB lunch.
Tweet your lunch @uwdub, including a group selfie and telling us what DUB means to you.
Keep your receipt. We will reimburse up to $50 for your group of 4. Lunch with diverse DUB friends is fun and informative, but free lunch is better!
