Dialogue Series

The goal of The Butler Center dialogue series is to give students a safe and brave space to experience intercultural communication with other students.

Facilitators will provide opportunities for participants to deepen their understanding of dimensions of identity (The Big 8);  topics to include but not limited to race, nationalism, class, sexual orientation, abilities and gender. Our aim is to assist students in developing strategies through interactive discussion, self-awareness and reflection activities that foster positive change both on and off campus.  Participants will be given time to both talk and listen. Preparation materials (videos, personal stories and/or articles) for each dialogue will be shared with students who reserve their space to attend.
