World in Conversation: 2019 Day of Dialogue

Penn State’s World in Conversation: the Center for Public Diplomacy held a “Day of Dialogue” on Jan. 21, drawing more than 600 campus community members together in Thomas Building on the University Park campus, to participate in 60 facilitated dialogue groups held throughout the day. Every group conversation – a mix of students, faculty and staff – included two Penn State student facilitators trained by World in Conversation, a student-driven center dedicated to building greater understanding on contentious topics through facilitated dialogue, a methodology for helping people more effectively and meaningfully communicate with each other.
