Tea Talks provide students, faculty, and staff at UGA a space to come together to discuss global issues and international or cultural topics in an intimate and comfortable setting. The goal of Tea Talks is to raise awareness and educate the public on a socio-cultural issue, and to facilitate a dialogue on the topic. Usually, Tea Talks consist of a 20-30 minute presentation, followed by a group discussion.
