Dining Services

Maureen Timmons is the Director of Dining Services at Northeastern University. She uses SAIL to integrate learning into the dining experience. At Educate Your Palate, 2018, they used the SAIL skill of systems thinking to talk about creating zero waste. They also practiced self-care since the event allows students to relax right before finals week. “Once I learned about SAIL and found out about the framework it was almost like a light opened. There’s this framework that we can use in Dining, and since we see students probably more than any group on campus… that was a turning point.”
