Inviting Dialogue: Renewing the Deep Purposes of Higher Education

Clark University’s Higgins School of Humanities published a document in 2011 called “Inviting Dialogue: Renewing the Deep Purposes of Higher Education,” which recounts the growth of the Difficult Dialogues project at Clark, and offers a number of resources for further exploration of the work of dialogue. With stories from students, faculty, and administrators, this serves as a multi-layered inspritation for how dialogue might serve any college campus.

From the intro…

The work of the Difficult Dialogues initiative at Clark began when we responded to the Ford Foundation call for proposals in the Spring of 2005. Though there was a range of more specific issues and incentives behind their call, we took dialogue itself as our path. Examining discourse on our campus, we began to explore the possibilities for more mindful and fruitful exchanges in classrooms, campus life, faculty governance, and in relationships with the larger community.
