Sustained Dialogue is a highly adaptable intergroup dialogue model based on the work of Dr. Harold Saunders in international peace negotiations. The Sustained Dialogue Campus Network (SDCN) helps colleges and universities build capacity for campus dialogue by supporting administrators, faculty, staff, and students in developing and implementing campus dialogue initiatives and building campus cultures of dialogue. Students, faculty, staff, and administrators involved in campus SD programs together move from dialogue to action on community conflicts, especially those involving social identity. In this interactive presentation, SDCN staff will share profiles of varied campuses using the SD model and lessons for spreading dialogue work formally and informally on campuses. The session will also include key elements, concepts, and values of the model and a ready-to-implement activity to take home. This session should particularly benefit those considering implementation of intergroup dialogue processes within civic engagement programs for students, faculty, staff, administrators, and campus leaders.
