The DUB Faculty Meeting and DUB Small Group Mixers focus on communication and networking within the DUB community.
Mixers for March 30, 2022 are being organized in this document:
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 small group mixers.
The DUB faculty meeting will be held virtually. Zoom information is provided in the organizing document linked above.
DUB Small Group Mixers are intended to be lightweight and grassroot opportunities for staying connected. The heart of the DUB community is our diversity of perspectives, bringing together people and ideas that might otherwise be hidden in our units. Any member of the DUB community can and should host a mixer. We expect mixers to require little or no advance preparation. Participants may declare a topic of interest for a mixer, or they may decide to just connect and socialize.
We aim to support both virtual and in-person mixers.
To host a virtual mixer, use the organizing document to provide a Zoom link. As you decide whether to join an existing virtual mixer or start a new virtual mixer, be mindful of the virtual format and how many people can effectively participate in a given mixer. This will vary according to the plan for any mixer, so use your best judgment.
To host an in-person mixer, use the organizing document to suggest a location and format. Because of our current distributed nature, we do not expect in-person activities are necessarily on campus. Be sure all activities will comply with COVID-related policies, including strict campus policies regarding masks and eating. Also provide enough information for potential participants to understand the planned activity (e.g., limit on number of participants, indoor versus outdoor activities). Non-virtual mixers will not be reimbursed (i.e., we are not yet returning to DUB-funded lunches for small group mixers).
