Campus Network

Create a Culture of Dialogue with Sustained Dialogue®

Sustained Dialogue is a unique initiative that brings together students (and sometimes faculty and staff) who wouldn’t usually cross paths to talk about issues they might shy away from. It provides the necessary conditions for open discussions. The recurring nature of these dialogues ensures they are truly ‘sustained,’ fostering a deeper understanding over time.

The Sustained Dialogue Campus Network is the campus-focused branch of our work, where we train thousands of students, faculty, and staff each year to create dialogue-to-action initiatives.

Not based on a campus? This campus network works with 1) nonprofits that serve students, and 2) high schools.
