Student & Faculty Lunch Programs

Postponed until Spring 2022

Meals for Mentoring (M4M), FEAST for Teaching, and Dine with the Dean are great ways for students to meet with the faculty and Lynn Cooley, Dean of the Graduate School, in an informal setting. We look forward to bringing these helpful and enjoyable programs back in Fall 2022. This page will be updated when new information is available.

Meals for Mentoring [M4M] 

When you take advantage of the Graduate School’s Meals for Mentoring program, you can talk about your research, coursework, career goals, and personal and professional development over a free lunch.
 
Both students and faculty members can request two Meals for Mentoring dining cards per term. Each card provides a free lunch for one faculty member and one Graduate School student at Durfee’s, Divinity Refectory (Divinity School), Café Med (Medical area), Thain Family Cafe (Bass Library Cafe), Evans Hall Café (SOM) and Charley’s Place (SOM) & Kosher Kitchen at the Slifka Center, or any campus dining hall, including West Campus Dining, where the faculty member has ID access.
 
Students and faculty can get M4M dining cards at the Graduate School Information Desk, 1st floor, Warner House (1 Hillhouse avenue), from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekdays with Yale ID. Please call 203.432.2770 for more information.

This program offers students the opportunity to meet and have lunch with the Dean of Yale’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. it is a great opportunity for students to ask important questions, seek advice, or express areas of concern directly to the Dean.
