What is a dine-in?

Dine-ins are small discussion groups which meet during a regularly-scheduled meal time in a campus dining facility. Dine-ins are facilitated by speakers, who select a theme/topic for discussion as well as some brief readings that will be distributed prior to the conference. Each dine-in will contain no more than 10 people. Anyone is welcome to sign up for a dine-in, but pre-registration is required and assignments will be made at the discretion of CWI staff. Due to space limitations, not all attendees expressing interest in a dine-in will be able to be assigned to one.
