The campus community is invited to attend a free Sustained Dialogue moderator training session Saturday, Sept. 16, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Linsalata Alumni Center.
The Sustained Dialogue Program brings together individuals from diverse backgrounds to discuss diversity and inclusion issues as well as campus issues of concern. At the end of the program, groups make recommendations on ways to improve the campus experience and present their proposals to university administrators. Sustained Dialogue provides an excellent opportunity to meet others, discuss important campus issues and make positive changes on campus.
The training session will provide information about the program and provide tools for effectively moderating a Sustained Dialogue group.
This training is mandatory for anyone wishing to serve as a moderator for the CWRU Sustained Dialogue Program this fall but has not attended a previous training. However, the training also will be beneficial to those wishing to learn more about the Sustained Dialogue Program, practice the art of dialogue before joining a Sustained Dialogue group or learn how to facilitate critical conversations in the classroom or with colleagues and others.
The training is free and open to CWRU staff, faculty and students.
For more information about the program or to join a dialogue group this fall, contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity or email@example.com in the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
Additional information about the Sustained Dialogue Program and an application to join a dialogue group will be available on the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity and Office of Multicultural Affairs websites later this month.
The Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity, First Year Experience and Family Programs and the Office of Multicultural Affairs sponsor the CWRU Sustained Dialogue Program.
