These projects are local, environmental in nature, and give back to the Husky community. And, because we know you want information and input, the Student Advisory Council is

“Dinealogue” dinner conversation series: Apply now!

From: Environment_advisers <environment_advisers-bounces@mailman12.u.washington.edu> On Behalf Of Barbara Owens
Sent: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 10:53 AM
To: environment_advisers@uw.edu
Subject: [Environment_advisers] FW: "Dinealogue" dinner conversation series: Apply now!

The Husky Leadership Initiative and Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center are hosting a “Dinealogue” series to engage small groups of undergraduates in dialogue around salient social issues. We thought College of the Environment students would be especially interested in the upcoming conversation focused on climate change. Will you please forward this along to your student networks ? Thank you for your help!

Best,

Fran Lo, Director, HLI

******************

Dear Students,

We believe that now, more than ever, we must engage in dialogue with people who have different beliefs in order to broaden our perspectives and generate understanding and empathy. The Dinealogue series was created for this reason. We invite you to apply to be part of a lively and intimate conversation on current social issues with other UW students. These staff-facilitated dinners will give you the opportunity to meet and converse with a small group of undergraduate students and cultivate your capacity to talk to one another in an open, honest and respectful way. These dialogues are funded through Campus Compact’s Fund for Positive Engagement and utilize content from the Living Room Conversations and the Civil Conversations Project.

Each Dinealogue will focus on a specific topic. We do not intend for every participant to be an “expert” on the topic, but instead hope that this topic generates interest and discussion amongst the group. Your staff facilitator may send you some additional resources on the topic prior to the event.

The Spring Quarter Dinealogues is as follows (all Dinealogues will take place on the UW Seattle campus, and dinner will be provided):

Topic: Immigration

Date: Wednesday, April 18

Time: 5-7 p.m.

Topic: Climate Change

Date: Monday, April 23

Time: 5-7 p.m.

Topic: Free speech

Date: Tuesday, May 8

Time: 5-7 p.m.

Interested in participating in one of these Spring quarter Dinealogues? Apply HERE by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 8. Due to the nature of these conversations, we ask student participants to commit to the full 2-hour dinner dialogue.

This project was inspired by the original Dinealogue student organization, founded in 2013 by Supo Techagumthorn ’16, Tim Tan ’13, Chelsa Ayers ’15, Savannah Ledgerwood ’15, Grace Nguyen ’16, and Matt Goeppele-Parrish ’16.
