Fostering Civil Discourse on Campuses
Community Conversation: Fostering Civil Discourse on College Campuses
Rebekah DeLine, Director of the Office of Civic and Social Engagement, Saint Mary’s College
Community engagement and a sense of connectedness are not possible without the ability to dialogue in a civil manner. In this session, participants will experience a structured conversation based on the framework of Conversation Cafés. The topic of the conversation directly connects to the work to promote civil discourse and community engagement on campuses. Furthermore, the session illustrates a technique that participants can take back for use on their home campuses. A bibliography and information on Conversation Cafés will be provided.
