Sustained Dialogue Campus Network Conference March 7-9

We are excited to announce that the Sustained Dialogue Campus Network will be hosting its annual conference this March 7th – 9th, and NCDD members, especially those working in higher education, are invited! This year’s gathering is being hosted at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and promises to be a great opportunity to deepen our work on campus and connect with campus dialogue practitioners from around the country.

The conference will be attended by NCDD members like Phil Neisser, Jacob Hess, Mark Gerzon, Carolyn Lukensmeyer, and Len & Libby Traubman, and hopefully, you! In addition, our very own NCDD director, Sandy Heierbacher, will be offering a dialogue and deliberation workshop AND hosting a breakfast or dinner for NCDD members who attend the gathering, so make sure to email Sandy at sandy@ncdd.org to let her know you plan on attending.

Whether or not your are doing sustained dialogue work on campus, this conference has a lot to offer:

The Sustained Dialogue Conference is an unparalleled opportunity to come together as a Network and learn from student leaders, administrators, alumni, and supporters from across the country. This year’s Conference, featuring expert guest speakers from social justice, dialogue, and civic engagement fields, will energize you for a strong semester of “dialogue-to-action” and will prepare you to meet your 2014 goals.

Specifically, at the Summit, you will:

  • Learn from and be inspired by the diverse network of individuals engaging in SD across the nation
  • Build your skill-set around moving from dialogue to action using the SD model
  • Exchange practices for tools to build more inclusive communities
  • Create a work plan of how to maximize Sustained Dialogue as a student group on your campus

Not doing SD? You’re invited too! We welcome those who are engaged in other dialogue and conflict resolution programs as well as those who are interested in starting SD in their context.

The registration deadline is this Saturday, February 15th, so make sure to register today! NCDD members should register as “Community Members” for $65 per day you attend.

We hope to see you there!
