The Dean’s Forum

Merrimack College students have a unique opportunity to engage with faculty and administrators to further their intellectually rich academic experiences.


Merrimack College’s Dean’s Forum - also known as “The Dean’s Lunch Group”​ - are typically held during the fall semester. These monthly gatherings create an opportunity for a select group of freshmen to connect with deans, associate deans, vice provosts and the provost for intellectual exchange.

The conversations center on contemporary life and the pursuit of wisdom, and often take place around a shared meal or experience. They are designed to offer a stimulating and provocative atmosphere to accentuate the academic experience during first semester.

​Conversations might focus on the role of education in life, career and professional development, service to the greater good, and living a life with meaning.Invited freshmen will be enrolled into one of the forums and the first meeting will take place during fall Orientation.

The gatherings will take place outside the regular course schedule. It is not a requirement, and is not a class that you get a grade in or earn credit for taking. It will, however, provide an invaluable opportunity for students to engage with an additional mentor at Merrimack and with peers seeking a more interactive experience at college.
