Brown Bag Discussion Series

Each summer staff and faculty can join in a series of brown bag lunches for six weeks during the summer (May–June) to engage in a conversation about what it means for Hope College to be at its best as a community of faith. These lunches are intended as a way to foster discussion about Hope’s identity that is specific (if not unique) to the college.
