Dinealogue: A Dinner Conversation Series

We believe that now, more than ever, we must engage in dialogue with people who have different beliefs in order to broaden our perspectives and generate understanding and empathy.  The Dinealogue series was created for this reason. We invite you to apply to be part of a lively and intimate conversation on current social issues with other UW students.  These staff-facilitated dinners will give you the opportunity to meet and converse with a small group of undergraduate students and cultivate your capacity to talk to one another in an open, honest and respectful way.  These dialogues are funded through Campus Compact’s Fund for Positive Engagement and are inspired by the Living Room Conversations and the Civil Conversations Project .

Each Dinealogue will focus on a specific topic. We do not intend for every participant to be an “expert” on the topic, but instead hope that this topic generates interest and discussion amongst the group. Your staff facilitator may send you some additional resources on the topic prior to the event.

The Fall Quarter Dinealogues is as follows:

Topic:  Homelessness

Date: Tuesday, November 14

Time: 5-7 p.m.

Location: Cultivate

 

Topic: Faith and Religion in Society

Date: Thursday, November 30

Time: 5-7 p.m.

Location: Cultivate

 

Interested in participating in one of these two Fall quarter Dinealogues? Apply HERE by 9 a.m. on Monday, November 6.   Due to the nature of these conversations, we ask student participants to commit to the full 2-hour dinner dialogue.  Several other Dinealogues will also be offered in both winter and spring quarters.

 

The Dinealogues are sponsored by the Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center and the Husky Leadership Initiative.
