Discuss long-distance relationships at upcoming brown-bag lunch

The Leadership Development Institute of the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women will host a brown-bag panel discussion on “extreme commuting” on Tuesday, May 1, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Spartan Room of the Thwing Center.

More than 7 million couples in the U.S. consider themselves to be in long-distance relationships.  Ninety-five percent of those couples live between 30 and 950 miles apart and visit one another once a week to once every four weeks. This has become a common situation in academia.

Panelists will include Damaris Punales-Alpizar, assistant professor of modern languages and literature; Suzanne Rivera, associate vice president for research; and Katherine Schaub, doctoral student in the history department.

RSVP online.
