  • Online: Racial Justice Dinner Dialogue Series

    Service-Learning invites students and employees to our virtual Sustained Dialogue Series. Recent events, starting with the brutal murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, have again brought attention to that the rectification of racial injustice is long overdue and something that must be dealt with immediately as a society.

    Grab dinner and head to your computer as we dialogue together to probe into and address causes of deep-rooted human conflict. 

    Sustained Dialogues help people to transform relationships and design change processes around the world. We define dialogue as “listening deeply enough to be changed by what you learn.” Groups will be small and facilitated by a moderator that will ask questions of the group to get the dialogue started.


    All sessions are online at 5 p.m. on Wednesday:

    • July 8: Race 301 — Institutional Racism
    • July 15: Race 401 — Racial Profiling
