About C-Cubed Luncheons
Spring 2014 semester, a group of faculty, staff, and administrators worked together to invent the C-Cubed Lunches--Three "C's" standing for Conversation, Community, Collegiality. We just wanted a chance to meet and get to know our colleagues in an easy, enjoyable fashion. We wanted a quiet space for conversation; we wanted to include folks who prefer to bring their lunch to campus; we wanted to be inclusive of vegetarians and gluten-free eaters. We invented C-Cubed.
The lunch menus are overseen by Matt Lean, and he and his team bring their creativity and culinary skills to the task. The 2014 spring-semester C-Cubed lunches were a success, drawing 25-35 staff/faculty and their guests to the Memorial Union Building. We are in the Alumni Lounge, with lots of windows and a north view. The Friday menu is usually with an "action station" and works well with foods that are enhanced by being served "hot off the griddle."
The C-Cubed lunches are held Thursdays and Fridays throughout the school year from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. There are no presentations, no agenda. All employees, along with their guests, are invited. Lunch is $10 (cash, credit cards, and C-Cubed gift certificates are accepted); attendees may bring their own lunch instead of purchasing the buffet. Coffee, tea, fruit-infused water, cookies and fruit are available free for all, even if you do not purchase the buffet. All items on the buffet are labeled if they are vegetarian or gluten free.
