INITIATIVE ON CAMPUS DIALOGUES

The Initiative on Campus Dialogues (ICD) is a working group originally organized as part of the project on Humility & Conviction in Public Life. This initiative brings together UConn students, staff and faculty, as well as non-university practitioners, around a two-step model focused on dialogue and implementation.

ICD works to create resources and foster networks by which dialogue can be robustly and collectively pursued and promoted within the UConn community and beyond. ICD helps to plan and promote productive dialogue over divisive issues in order to create sustainable institutional change, at the university and local level, in the tenor, tone and hopefully outcomes of how we discuss controversial topics.

ICD FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

The ICD Fellowship Program is a University-wide partnership, with participation from academic, service, outreach and administrative units. Fellowship teams engage in a year-long, shared-learning process, develop projects that apply dialogue and deliberation to a specific content areas and curricular settings, and make use of, and potentially contribute to, current research-in-practice.
