Start the Conversation

Are you all in for fostering a safe and open-minded environment that is respectful of everyone?

  • What does it take to build a close friendship with someone who is different from you?

  • When is it your responsibility to help others to feel welcome on campus?

  • What is your personal role in creating a more inclusive campus?

  • What does it take to put yourself in situations where you feel you don’t belong in order to meet new people?

  • How should you respond when you learn that a colleague feels unwelcome or unsafe on our campus?

Find your Ambassador

Ambassadors will consult with faculty, students, and staff in the units they represent regarding the purpose, use, and distribution of the content, as well as connect participants with experienced conversation facilitators (when requested).

If you have more question about sponsoring a facilitated dialogue, please contact the World in Conversation Center for Public Diplomacy.
