What is Spartans-In-Dialogue?

Spartans-In-Dialogue is a 5-week interactive dialogue experience designed to build relationships across difference and explore topics related to racial identity, race relations, and intersectionality. As a participant, you will learn more about yourself and understand others who are different than you while practicing dialogue skills to communicate effectively about difficult topics. You will learn communication, group dynamics, and diversity skills you can document on the co-curricular transcript to help you with employment, graduate, and professional schools..
