Dialogue and Healing

The Division of Student Affairs is proud to host the Dialogue & Healing Series, a set of lectures, roundtable discussions and workshops held across campus this spring. Sessions will be focused around the areas of politics, racial justice, gender justice and trauma.

The series grew out of a need to create opportunities for students, faculty and staff to engage in meaningful dialogue, build an inclusive community and grow through an understanding of international, national and local events that impact our everyday lives and the campus culture.

Through this series, we hope to foster a culture of healing through dialogue for ourselves, our peers and those we serve. We hope you will join us for sessions throughout the spring.
