This semester, Student Life & Leadership will be introducing Thunderbird Dialogues: Students Having Real Conversations About Real Issues. Thunderbird Dialogues are student-led discussions in which students can engage in constructive and respectful dialogue while sharing their views and experiences.
What students can expect:
- Learn how to create communities of belonging
- Build cross-cultural relationships through meaningful dialogue
- Engage in active listening, empathy, and perspective-taking
- Build skillset to understand cultural differences and similarities
- Recognize ways in which others’ cultural and social identities differ from their own and how they see and experience the world differently.
The students in Paul Harasha's Gender and Society class (SOC 212) will be leading three Thunderbird Dialogue discussions this semester. Please share with students.
