Initiative on Campus Dialogues: "Environmental Map"
The Initiative on Campus Dialogues (ICD) is a working group organized as part of the UConn Humanities Institute’s Humility & Conviction in Public Life project. ICD aims to plan and promote productive dialogue over divisive issues in order to create sustainable and infrastructural change, at the university and local level, in the tenor, tone and hopefully outcomes of how we discuss controversial topics. This community-building exercise engages UConn students, staff and faculty, as well as non-university practitioners, around a two-step model focused on dialogue and implementation.
On this survey,
Our goal is to create an "environmental map" to connect existing dialogue work and practitioners on and off campus. Toward that end, we invite you to describe your work, working groups, classes, research projects, clubs, organisations, or similar that are related to the promotion of dialogue over divisive issues or through difference.

You may fill in the survey multiple times, no questions are required to submit the survey so you only need answer those questions relevant for you.
