In a time of significant political polarization, racial inequity, growing economic inequality, a climate crisis, and other dire problems in need of resolution, the responsibility of higher education to help students develop skills in deliberative dialogue and bridge-building across social differences is more critical than ever. Providing students with opportunities to practice such skills will both enhance their workforce preparation and aid their development of competencies as inclusive, civic-minded professionals and publicly-engaged future leaders. On this page, find resources and opportunities that will allow you to create space for reflective practice, dialogue, and learning.
