NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY, Evanston, IL
Imagine every journalist being trained in how to create dialogue about deep difference? Northwestern’s campus is making that dream a reality. When the group began in 2012, the SD team set their sights on creating an experience that could scale to compliment the curriculum. Now, with several years of student-led dialogue as experience, Northwestern’s campus is experimenting with a co-curricular Sustained Dialogue requirement for future students in the Medill School of Journalism and other majors. The campus has trained over 150 student moderators and run over 35 dialogue groups.
