We invite you to join the next Dialogue Zone facilitator cohort!

2021-2022 Facilitator Cohort
Applications due by May 15, 2021
Open to faculty, staff, and students

The Dialogue Zone is accepting applications from faculty, staff, and students to join their 2021-2022 cohort of facilitators. The Dialogue Zone brings together faculty, staff and students in a common space, to engage in research, learning and practice focused on facilitated dialogue as a primary method for understanding different social and cultural perspectives. There will be two cohorts next year, one for faculty and staff and one for students.  The facilitator cohorts build members’ experience with and enhance capacity for facilitating intentional dialogues to allow participants to utilize their acquired skills in a variety of spaces. The cohort model allows the facilitators to learn and grow together, as trust and community are essential to dialogue. 

To apply, visit this link.  If you have questions, please contact Jason Combs, Coordinator for the Dialogue Zone, at

We are hosting two informational sessions if you want to learn more about the facilitator cohort experience. Please join us on Zoom on May 12, 2021 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. or from 3:00-4:00 p.m. The Zoom sessions are directly linked here

A Year of Anti-Racist Efforts: Becoming a University Committed to “Good Trouble”

A virtual dialogue hosted by the Dialogue Zone
Friday, May 14, 2021
12:00-1:30 p.m. on Zoom

Open to faculty, staff, and students

A commitment to anti-racism work is a commitment to “good trouble,” in John Lewis’s words. A year after the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, and a year after UD resolved to become an anti-racist university, it’s time to reflect. In the face of health challenges, financial insecurity, and constant uncertainty, what progress on racial justice work have we been able to achieve at UD? What obstacles remain? How can we continue forward? How do we sustain the work to bring real change to our institution and see true equity in action? 

Please register here.  After registering, you will receive information about how to join the Zoom session.
