Become a Trained Deliberative Dialogue Facilitator!

2019-02-21 12:30pm

The next training will take place from 12:30 – 3:30 pm in Union 220, with a deliberative dialogue open to campus to follow from 3:30 - 4:45 pm.

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."

The next training will take place from 12:30 – 3:30 pm in Union 220, with a deliberative dialogue open to campus to follow from 3:30 - 4:45 pm. Please note the corrected time of the event. To become a certified facilitator, participants must attend both a 3-hour training and a deliberative dialogue. Successful completion of this training will earn attendees a signed certificate of completion. Light refreshments will be provided.
