About Dialogue and Deliberation

Dialogue and Deliberation are innovative processes that help people come together across differences to tackle challenging problems and conversations. In a time of extreme political partisanship and increased conflict between religious and ethnic groups, teaching, spreading, and supporting the skills of Dialogue and Deliberation are vital (National Coalition of Dialogue and Deliberation).

NASPA’s Project Page "Issue Guides for Deliberative Dialogue" includes our first and second issue guides in partnership with the Kettering Foundation, on Free Speech and the Inclusive Campus and Fraternity and Sorority Life along with resources to train moderators on how to conduct a forum so that every sector across the higher education community may participate. NASPA’s issue guide can be used for dialogue between students and practitioners, and cross-functionally across different departments and levels of leadership as well. Institutions that conduct a forum with the guide should make sure to fill out a program evaluation to ensure proper assessment of the tool and to inform future research. Please visit the project page linked above for more!
