Dialogues Program at MSU Denver
Conflict is a normal part of life. But it is not always a comfortable one. Lean into the discomfort and join us to dialogue about difficult topics in a meaningful way.
What is Dialogue?
Dialogue is not debate or discussion. Rather, dialogue is a process where we invite inquiry, explore differences, and build shared understandings. Dialogue brings people together to deeply engage in listening, sharing our individual lived experiences and challenges us to think about different perspectives other than our own. Above all, dialogue is about having a space to learn from each other despite differences and to create change.
In our campus community, the Dialogues Program brings together students, faculty, and staff to participate in small-group dialogues. These dialogues are offered through semester-based series, single opportunities, can be tailored to fit the classroom, department meeting, student organization event, program discussion, and many other settings. We also host other events that encourage community building and understanding.
Please join us for our upcoming events:
Summer 2020 Dialogue Series
How Do We Talk About Race?
As a result of the recent and on-going events across the country related to police violence and communities of color, many in the campus community may be struggling to identify how they feel, provide support to others, engage with others on social media, talk with their kids, and how to talk with their coworkers in a way that feels both genuine and productive.
Within the context of covid-19, social distancing, and experiencing a health crisis that had wide ripple effects itself, the Dialogues program is offering a summer series to talk about, talking about race.
Please click on the below links to access and/or RSVP for our summer series. Staff, faculty and staff are welcome.
A note on the summer schedule:
Please be aware that the dialogue sessions may have limited capacity. You may be placed on a waitlist if you sign-up after we have reached our capacity for those events. We will let you know if spots open up and if we are able to plan an additional session. We also recognize that there may be a session that you cannot attend. We scheduled the sessions for different days and times in the hopes that there is an option that may work for you.
The Livestream Panel event on June 12 does not have any limits! You can join simply by clicking the livestream link at the time of the event.
