Creating a Meaningful Dialogue
During these difficult times, we must all step up as leaders to create the dialogue our campus and communities desperately need. Having conversations with people you disagree with is important now more than ever. Respecting the identities of all is crucial in starting productive dialogue. Learn more about facilitating difficult conversations by reading our Creating a Meaningful Dialogue Guide.
Statement of Nonpartisanship
The Leadership and Service Center’s involvement in civic engagement is a nonpartisan effort. Our initiatives are meant to encourage informed and active participation in government, increase understanding of public issues, and create a culture of civic education and advocacy. The Leadership and Service Center does not support nor oppose any candidates for office or political party. As a center, we recognize it is unlikely for individual members of our team to be entirely nonpartisan with their personal views. Despite this, we find strength from this diversity of opinions and thoughts, rather than weakness. To balance our political ideologies, we intentionally select students from across the political spectrum in hopes of representing everyone.
