Bridging Our Divides

Bridging Our Divides is a campus dialogue series. The goal is to explore a number of pressing issue regarding communication, community, and student learning across a wider range of stakeholders.

The series is funded in part by a grant from the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). There are examples of work done with similar grants.

The dialogues are structured and run using a jigsaw sharing model and the Intergroup Dialogue approach.

Mini-Grant Application

Our grant was built with an opportunity for dialogue participants to persue actionable items that result from the dialog. As a result, dialogue participants can apply for a subsidary grant.
