UMA Programs


UMA Lunches


The 1st Tuesday of each month the UMA informal lunches are held at 11:45 at McAlister’s Deli on Franklin Street.  There is no agenda, no speaker; just a chance to mingle with your colleagues.  Bring your questions, issues and discussion topics. This is a time when we can ask each other for help or discussion.  When you arrive, go ahead and order your lunch.  We usually sit downstairs, but if you don’t see us downstairs, look upstairs, too.


The 3rd Wednesday of each month the UMA conversation lunches are held at 11:45 at Campus Y.  These lunches feature an invited guest from campus facilitating a conversation on the day’s topic. A small snack shop is available, but everyone is welcome to Brown Bag.
