What is Spartans-In-Dialogue?

Spartans-In-Dialogue is a 5-week interactive dialogue experience designed to build relationships across difference.  Participants of different identities (i.e. race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, faith, socioeconomic status, etc.) will engage in ongoing, intergroup communication about topics related to racial identity, race relations, and intersections with other identities.

How does this benefit me?

Goals for Spartan-In-Dialogue Program:

  • Build relationships and effectively communicate across difference
  • Increase awareness and understanding of personal and other perspectives and experiences, as well as understand challenges related to national and global issues
  • *Practice dialogue skills to engage in meaningful conversations about difficult topics
  • *Participants will get an official “certificate of completion” after completing the 5-week experience.

*(GREAT for your resume and future job qualifications)
