Become a certified deliberate dialogue facilitator!
The Office of Community Development invites all students, staff, faculty and community members for a free training on how to become a deliberative dialogue facilitator.
On Thursday, February 21, the Office of Community Development invites all students, faculty, staff and community members to become a certified deliberative dialogue facilitator.
Deliberative Dialogues are an opportunity to engage in discussions around a variety of topics of public concern. As described by the National Issues Forums Institute, "unlike debate, or lecture, or an airing of grievances, deliberation asks us to begin with what we hold most dear and share our personal experiences with a given issue. It’s not about reaching agreement or seeing eye-to-eye. It’s about looking at the costs and consequences of possible solutions to daunting problems, and finding out what we, as a people, will or will not accept as a solution."
This year’s training will take place from Noon – 4:30 pm in Union 220 and will include training and a sample dialogue. Food will be provided for all attendees. Successful completion of this training will earn attendees a signed certificate of completion.
