The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) hosts weekly Brown Bag discussions, open to members of the campus and the community, from 12:30–1:25p.m. on most Fridays during the academic year. Each week, a speaker or small panel leads a presentation on a provocative social issue, then opens up the floor for discussion. Free pizza will be provided.

In the late 1910s, a cohort of students from southern China arrived in Virginia to study at Richmond College. Chinese students from both Richmond and Westhampton College became active members of the University community, preserving and promoting their identities while forming the first cultural and co-ed organizations on campus. This Brown Bag celebrates Asian student voice in the intervening century with a student-driven panel discussion, and will also feature archival yearbooks from the Boatwright Memorial Library Rare Books & Special Collections.
