At Dartmouth, we’re strengthening a culture in which community members engage in respectful discussion across differences and feel comfortable having their views challenged. Dartmouth Dialogues is our shared commitment to expanding programming across the institution dedicated to facilitating conversations and skills that bridge political and personal divides. Listening to—and including—a diversity of ideological perspectives fosters learning, community, and innovation. Solving the world’s most pressing challenges hinges on our ability to understand and discuss viewpoints different from our own. Read the story.

Encouraging dialogue across differences, the DPU engages students on issues of societal importance.
Dartmouth Dialogues puts a renewed focus on our ability to think critically, to question, to probe, and reflect, rather than follow a predetermined ideology. The initiative will expands our capacity to cultivate these talents for our campus community, which as never been more important than it is today.
