Two Virtual Dialogues April 27 and 29

    April 20, 2020

    A set of virtual civic dialogues will be offered during the week of April 27 to engage students in conversation and foster community.

    The University of Scranton’s Office of Community Relations in collaboration with various on and off-campus partners will offer two virtual dialogues the week of April 27. These dialogues offer the opportunity for engagement and community building through sharing experiences and ideas with individuals from a variety of diverse backgrounds. Both offerings are a part of the University’s Civic Dialogues program. These dialogues allow participants to share their ideas and views, and more importantly, to genuinely listen to and learn from others.

    The first virtual dialogue on Monday, April 27 is the third offering from the “Bursting Our Political Bubbles” student political dialogue series. This discussion will explore views and ideas on the topic of Climate Change.  Students from varied political perspectives and backgrounds are invited to engage and encounter each other's experiences and views - not debate or persuade - through structured dialogue to build understanding and seek areas of common ground. The structured dialogue session will be held virtually on Zoom from 6:30-8:00 p.m. on April 27. Registration is required here. Questions? Contact

    The second virtual dialogue on Wednesday, April 29 is a Community Dialogue offering members of both the University of Scranton and the broader Scranton area communities to connect in open conversation. This dialogue, “Finding Community Amid Coronavirus: An Online Dialogue” will offer participants the opportunity to reflect on how past experiences can inform our current challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. Join us to share with and learn from others about community and connection in a time of crisis. This structured dialogue session will be held on Zoom from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. on April 29. Registration is required here.  This Community Dialogue is coordinated by the University’s Political Dialogues Working Group in collaboration with community partner, Valley in Motion, and is made possible by a University Strategic Initiatives Grant.
