The CHS Collaboration Café is an opportunity for you to connect with colleagues every Friday afternoon in a cafe-style atmosphere. Coffee, tea and refreshments will be provided by the college. The space will be set up to allow for flexibility whether you’re looking for individual, small or large-group work. The room will also be divided in to two spaces with one area designated for specific side conversations and topics.

The CHS Collaboration Cafe is a perfect spot to meet up with colleagues for:

  • Collaborative planning over a specific Request For Proposal (RFP)
  • Meetings of research specialty areas
  • Invited groups to brainstorm collaborative ideas over special topics/interest areas
  • Mentor and mentee get togethers
  • Consultations with the REACHS team
  • Individual writing time in a cafe atmosphere
