Sustained Dialogue is a dialogue-to-action model that enables participants to build relationships for addressing controversial issues and making positive change. The model is used in national, community, corporate and campus settings.

By offering students experience with the Sustained Dialogue model, The University of Alabama improves our campus community and enhances the lives of our students during and after college. Sustained Dialogue helps students make time to understand perspectives of individuals they would not otherwise meet; interact comfortably with all kinds of people; build relationships across lines of difference; and gain communication skills necessary for increasingly diverse academic, social and work environments. Students may enroll in our Sustained Dialogue course: NEW 120-001.
