About Dartmouth Dialogues Project:

The Dialogue Project provides training in the development of essential collaborative dialogue skills—fostering a community that cultivates the respectful and open exchange of ideas. Programming for students, faculty, and staff builds skills in such topics as empathetic listening, managing emotions, navigating conversations, and finding points of connection.

The Dialogue Project launches with a focus on the undergraduate experience and four primary components: a special topic series, the first of which is Middle East Dialogues, encompassing courses and events related to timely challenging topics; workshops where faculty, staff, and students can actively practice the skills of collaborative dialogue; guest speakers on campus who model and specialize in dialogue-related skills; and a new partnership with StoryCorps' One Small Step program, which brings two people with different perspectives together to record a conversation about their lives.
