Sustained Dialogue Campus Network

We work with over 40 campuses around the world to equip the next generation of leaders with the skills to build inclusive communities.


We began as an international conflict resolution approach and our efforts in that capacity have never wavered. We continue to conduct the Dartmouth conference, the longest running dialogue between US and Russia…. as well as work in several other countries around the world.


We provide trainings and ongoing technical support to all types of workplace environments so that staff feel more comfortable and engaged and can resolve conflicts among themselves effectively.


We work in communities across the United States and Latin America to enhance opportunities for citizens to have an effective voice. Citizens learn tools to engage across lines of difference and build stronger, more collaborative communities.
