Coffee Chats

Treat yourself to a Coffee Chat!

You'll discover interesting people, places, and ideas. Join us livestream via Zoom on your computer, tablet or phone from 10–11 a.m. each Friday. 

Coffee chats, equally entertaining as they are informative, are virtual one-hour conversations between Extended Education staff members and our incredible community guests. These conversations highlight community nonprofits and partners, and NMC staff and faculty. Each chat begins with an upbeat interview followed by a live zoom session to continue the conversation. You are encouraged to participate during the live Q and A portion if you choose. There are so many great topics to explore! Pour a cup of your favorite hot beverage, and spend an hour with us each week from the comfort of home.

Each Coffee Chat is just $10.
