  • The Dialogue made me realize how much more I have to learn about different ideas, cultures, and perspectives

  • It was really interesting to be in a space where everyone was given equal respect and everyone's perspectives were shared in a very honest way.  That's a rare conversation to have.

  • Students said it changed their lives; they continued talking about it and have asked for another dialogue.

The CU Dialogues Program engages diverse audiences of the CU-Boulder community in open conversation on difficult topics and across differences of all kinds. Housed under CU Engage: The Center for Community-Based Learning and Research within the School of Education, the CU Dialogues program serves the campus at large. The CU Dialogues Program helps to organize and facilitate dialogues for any sector of the University community, including academic departments/units, student organizations, administrative units, Resident Academic Programs (RAPs) and residence halls. The program also provides dialogues in off-campus community settings.

 

Classroom dialogues create experiential learning opportunities that reinforce course content and generate open discussion of difficult or controversial topics in CU courses across a range of disciplines.

 

Outreach dialogues on or off-campus settings other than classrooms, foster open sharing of experiences and perspectives among community members. 

 

The Program offers a 3-credit undergraduate course, "Dialogue Across Difference," which provides students the opportunity to learn what dialogue entails, practice dialogue, and be trained as dialogue facilitators.
