The Case Western Reserve University Sustained Dialogue program brings together individuals from various backgrounds to discuss campus, local and national issues of concern, including diversity and inclusion matters. Participants share and learn about identity and deepen their connections to campus and to one another, while focusing on topics about which they care deeply.
This year, Sustained Dialogue launches with an all campus Day of Dialogue on Friday, Sept. 17. In many ways, our community is returning to a new campus—one still impacted by COVID in ways large and small, under new leadership, grappling with issues of health and safety, racial equity, and more.
During the opening discussion from 10:30 a.m. to noon, attendees will gather in-person and online to discuss the atmosphere at the university as the semester begins. What is going well? What could be improved? What steps can we take to make this return a success?
Undergraduate students are especially encouraged to attend Sustained Dialogue for Newcomers, from 12:45 to 2 p.m. Whether you're a trained student moderator or simply interested in learning more, this session will include a robust discussion of why dialogue matters and what CWRU undergraduates are thinking about today. Join the Sustained Dialogue team to share your thoughts and hear what matters most to your fellow students.
