The goal of these joint faculty, student, and staff coffees is to promote collaboration and discuss complex ideas and trends related to FES research, teaching, and outreach goals. Organizers for 2017-2018 are Profs. Matt Betts, Mark Needham, and Steve Strauss.  The current FES coffee organization came about after discussion in March 2017 (notes from that discussion), and the current organization is detailed here.
