|Voices of Discovery Dialogue Program
Voices of Discovery is DU's diversity dialogue program, bringing together small groups of students from varied backgrounds to share their life and campus experiences related to diversity. The five-week program provides educational and involvement opportunities for student participants, graduate student facilitators and faculty/instructor and program coordinator collaborations.
2012-13 marks Voices' 11th year at DU, as a theory-based, co-curricular program providing student participants the opportunity to engage in facilitated reflection and dialogue about our identities and experiences. The small, diverse groups (no more than 20 participants) engage in face-to-face dialogue around a particular set of group identities (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity) and/or diversity-related topics (worldview, social systems, perceptions in the media, etc). The program consists of five weekly sessions (two hours per week) held during the middle of the quarter, led by a pair of trained graduate student facilitators.
