Out for Lunch is an informal conversation series with staff and faculty members and allows students to meet LGBTQIA+ faculty, staff and administrators in a casual space. 

The purpose of the 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. For this lunch, we will be talking with Micah Schneider, Assistant Director of Practicum Education for the School of Social Work! They will be leading their presentation Sharing your story: You have something that could be a game changer: your story! We all live with experiences that can help shape the way we see ourselves, that can help other people heal, and that can even help change the world. Join Micah, as they share their story and talk about the power that words have in shaping policy.
