THE DIALOGUE SERIES 

     

 


“What is the Dialogue Series?”

The Dialogue Series are round-table discussions based on Social Justice, Political & Civic Engagement and Current Event Topics. These talks are designed to engage student, faculty/staff and community partners in issues that face both Stockton College, New Jersey and the World. All are invited to join the discussion! Sessions will run about an hour at various locations across campus. Click on the links below to individual schedules and discussion descriptions.   

 

The Dialogue Series feature FOUR seperate calendars (plus "Additional Dialogues"), and all count towards a "Dialogue Credit" for your Service-Learning Course:

- "For the Greater Good" talks on Social Justice Issues

The "For the Greater Good" Dialogue Series focuses on Social Justice Issues and various sociological topics that face the United States and Beyond. "Greater Good" discussions offer the forum to state many view-points, as well as a starting point for complex issues to be continued among your friends. Sample topics include racism, sexism, able-ism, power and privilege, community activism, etc.
