Individuals of various races and genders sit on white foldable chairs in a circle in front of a set of large glass windows.

The Intercultural Center is thrilled to launch a new initiative this spring! The Critical Conversations Dialogue Program (CCDP) is an opportunity for individuals from diverse backgrounds from the seven schools at UMB to come together and engage in dialogue on topics related to social identity. 
CCDP is a four-week cohort-based dialogue program led by two trained facilitators. Each dialogue session will last two hours and is limited to 15 participants.
For our pilot launch this spring, we will have one student intergroup dialogue and one staff and faculty intergroup dialogue focused on the topic of race and racism. ​In the future, we hope to extend CCDP and offer multiple dialogues per semester on various social identities and topics including gender, sexuality, social class, disability, immigration, and more.
