Dialogue across Difference (DaD) is a semester-long opportunity to engage fellow classmates from a wide range of backgrounds in conversations on topics regarding race and ethnicity. DaD uses facilitated dialogues as a means to foster a sense of community, think critically about society and our campus environment, and create learning opportunities for participants.
DaD is for students who have a sincere interest in engaging in difficult conversations and building a sense of community at Butler and Wilson Colleges through dialogue with their peers. Those who find value in sharing their perspective and having their perspective challenged are highly encouraged to apply. Additionally, students should apply regardless of their familiarity with topics on race and ethnicity. The most important factor is a student’s commitment to respect as the group explores what may often be sensitive topics.
Applications are due on Monday, September 16 at noon. The group will meet Tuesdays, 8:00-9:30 beginning on September 24.
