Chai Wai Series

'What does "Chai Wai" mean?' you're asking yourself.

Chai Wai is Hindi for "tea or something like that" and is the name of our event series at the International and Area Studies Library at UIUC. Chai Wai events give the campus community an opportunity for enlightened conversation on important global issues. This conversation will be informed and guided by a moderator and 4 experts in the issues at hand. 

Come bring your own thoughts, questions and ideas and enjoy free tea and refreshments on Tuesday, January 30th at 3pm!
