Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Alonso Family Dialogue Series

The Student Life Multicultural Center prides itself on proactively engaging the campus and Columbus community in ongoing opportunities to dialogue about various topics, ideas, perspectives and philosophies.

The MCC is committed to true dialogue, which is collaborative, open-ended, and not steeped in the desire to "win" or be "right." Our program foci differ in that they are not places for debate, a competitive process of defending positions, which tends to be superficial and theoretical in nature. The MCC encourages participants to have conversations that have an intentional breadth, depth, and width of subject matter that interrupts, calls into question, and discomforts what we think we know and believe. 

Join us as at any of our community dialogues as we look to respectfully challenge one another and grow in the process!
