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 social identity and intersectionality. During the Spring 2017 semester, dialogues will focus on the topic of race, race relations, and its intersectionality 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)

What is the time commitment?

  • Dialogue groups will consist of 14-16 undergraduate students (some graduates) who will meet for 2 hours a week for 5 weeks in the Spring semester. Groups will meet beginning the week of March 20th  through the week of April 17th.
  • All participants who complete the 5-week experience will receive an official “certificate of completion” at the Spartans-In-Dialogue celebration on Tuesday, April 25, 6pm-8pm.

Who are Facilitators?

  • These groups will be led by trained co-facilitators (UNCG faculty, staff, and graduate students) who will guide open, honest, challenging, and reflective conversations.
