Deliberative Dialogues

The Center for Civic Engagement is excited to offer Deliberative Dialogues on campus!

Deliberative Dialogues are guided conversations on a political or controversial topic. This model of conversation removes polarizing positions and one-sided lectures by simply asking participants to investigate specific solutions to an issue through the help of an issue guide and facilitator.
