Facilitation Training


Dialogue Facilitator Training 

Our Dialogue Facilitators are trained faculty and staff from throughout the University who facilitate our Dialogue Classes and Community Conversations. Selected through an application process and thoroughly trained and evaluated, facilitators will have a deep understanding of identity and power, social justice and the dialogic process.

Please email the Dr. Terry Nance Center for Dialogue if you’re interested in joining the Facilitator Team.
