Good Business Fridays

good-business-fridays.pngJoin The Lewis Institute on Fridays for open and casual discussions about creating both profit and purpose.


Good Business Fridays is an Uncommon Table primarily designed for our undergraduate students, but all are welcome—graduate students, alumni, faculty, staff, and social innovators.

Every Friday between Noon and 1:30pm
in the Reynolds Global Lounge

Come when you can, there is no such thing as late!

Light snacks are provided, or feel free to bring lunch.
