Sustained Dialogue Application Deadline Extended

All members of our Cornell College community are encouraged to apply for our Sustained Dialogue retreat, taking place September 29th and 30th in Thomas Commons.  Sustained Dialogue is a program designed to transform identity-based conflict on college campuses using skills from international conflict resolution.  Sustained Dialogue can best be visualized as a Venn Diagram, or the intersection of Diversity and Inclusion, Leadership, and Conflict Resolution.
 
We are inviting you to apply and participate in Sustained Dialogue facilitator training on the Thursday and Friday of block break (September 29th and 30th) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. National SD trainers will lead this training retreat.  A certificate of completion will be given to all who attend the training in its entirety. From that training we will draw
individuals to help facilitate campus community discussions,
help address campus and community concerns, and serve as a voice and a guide throughout our campus climate issues.
 
If you are interested in learning more about Sustained Dialogue in general, or are interesting in participating in SD but not as a facilitator, we encourage you to attend the info session for all interested students, faculty and staff at 3 pm on  WednesdaySeptember 28th in Hedges
 
If you are interested in the SD Facilitator Training and Certificate of Completion, please read the description of Sustained dialogue at this link http://sustaineddialogue.org/.  Then fill out the application (this form) by Monday September 26.  If you are unable to attend the training, please mark your calendar for the Sustained Dialogue info session on the 28th at 3 pm in Hedges.
 
At the SD Training Retreat, you will be asked about your interest in a variety of year-round twice a block dialogue circles and/or participation in pop-up responses to campus climate or national issues based on your interest and availability.  If you have other questions, please feel free to reach out to kwilson@cornellcollege.edu
