Dear VSE Faculty:

For the past three years, during the fall semester, Dean Ball has hosted a series of luncheons with the VSE faculty. The feedback from faculty members who have attended these luncheons has been overwhelmingly positive. Therefore, Dean Ball would again like to host a series of lunches this fall with relatively small groups of VSE faculty, coming together from across all departments and all ranks. These lunches will be informal, with no particular agenda, and will provide you with an opportunity to ask questions about any topic. They will also provide an opportunity for social interaction between faculty from various departments who might otherwise not have many chances to meet.

The Dean invites you to attend one of the lunch dates listed below. To help with scheduling, please select all of the dates that you can attend, by placing an "X" on the dates that you are available. You may also indicate preferred dates by numbering your first choice with a 1, second with a 2, etc.  For dates that you are unavailable, please leave blank. Please select as many dates as you are available to help us to keep each group as small and balanced between departments and ranks as we can. All lunches will begin at 12:00 noon and end by 1:30PM. I will respond to you to confirm the date you will be attending the lunch.

_____  Oct. 3 (Tues.)

_____  Oct. 18 (Wed.)

_____  Oct. 25 (Wed.)

_____  Nov. 9 (Thurs.)

_____  Nov. 14 (Tues.)

Please let me know of any dietary restrictions. The Dean's Office will provide an assortment of soups, salads and sandwiches.

I would appreciate your reply to this email no later than Tuesday, September 19.

Dean Ball looks forward to seeing you at one of these lunches!

All the best,
