Sustained Dialogue

Modeled after the tenets of the nationally renowned Intergroup Dialogues Program, Sustained Dialogue is a student-centered, dialogic social justice education model that fosters student engagement and learning across differences. Sustained Dialogues focus on race, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion, and ability. 

Sustained Dialogue aims to bring people together from diverse backgrounds to address and resolve deep-rooted issues that are dividing the campus and community along political, religious, cultural, social, racial, or socioeconomic lines.

The 2013-2014 Interfaith Dialogues are a collaborative effort between the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Religion and Philosophy Department, and the Office of Spiritual Life. Dialogues will be held at 11 a.m. in the Miller Chapel Lobby on the following days:
