Explore interesting and unpredictable topics that will stretch your horizons at Journal Club!
What is Journal Club?
Journal Club is an informal, enjoyable, and intellectually stimulating time for anyone in the Gonzaga community to explore ideas and research that interests them. It’s a community of students, faculty, and staff who gather together to say, “This is what I’m reading, this is what I’m interested in, and this is what I’m thinking.”
When We Meet:
4:00 – 5:30 Friday afternoons before DPLS classes, Tilford, Room 115
DATES: Nov. 7 & 21, Dec. 5
What Are The Benefits?
Journal Club is an opportunity to get to know your fellow students and network with colleagues. It is an excellent platform for developing and improving teaching and presentation skills. It will also enhance your CV!
