Out for Lunch: Michael Cartusciello
Inspired by the success of the Dinner and Dialogue Series, Out to Lunch allows for informal conversations between students and LGBTQ+ faculty, staff, and administrators over lunch. The purpose of the lunch series is to provide an opportunity for students to hear from faculty, staff, and administrators in the LGBTQ+ community about their life experiences, careers, successes and challenges in an intimate setting. All university students are welcome to attend the Out for Lunch series.
