Bring People Together through Dialogue


Dialogue represents a democratic free exchange of philosophical ideas and perspectives between or among two or more individuals with the express goal of understanding others’ input to allow for synthesizing and refining each participant’s vantage point of intellectual reflection. Pursuing this approach to philosophical exchange motivates each participant to learn as opposed to seeking to win a debate predicated upon one’s privileged beliefs.


To create a connected campus community through dialogue that fosters relationship building, increases empathy, and enhances perspective taking.

GOAL 1: Connect people interested in dialogue (classes, programs, research, etc.).

GOAL 2: Promote dialogue opportunities on campus (classes, events, programs, etc.).

GOAL 3: Develop dialogue opportunities for members of the TCU campus community.
