Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Sustained Dialogue

Sustained Dialogue is a student organization at Ohio State that is also supported by the Multicultural Center and Social Justice Engagement initiatives.

Sustained Dialogue (SD) is a tool that helps students make time to understand the different perspectives of individuals they otherwise would not meet. Engaging in such important conversations not only enables them to interact comfortably with all kinds of people, but also helps build relationships across community divides. SD equips students with communication, leadership and professional skills necessary for increasingly diverse academic, social and work environments.

SD hosts a dialogue session every other week in the Multicultural Center and will also host some of the Alonso Family Dialogue Series programs.

Please join us for one or more of our regular dialogue sessions that will occur every other week on January 8, January 22, February 5, February 19, March 5, March 19, April 2, April 16.
