Dartmouth’s interdisciplinary programs in Jewish Studies and Middle Eastern Studies have a longstanding commitment to fostering dialogue, community, and joint academic inquiry. Building on this decades-long partnership and recent campus forums on the current conflict, the Middle East Dialogues foster learning and an open exchange of ideas to bridge what can appear to be an impenetrable divide.

The Dialogue Project provides training in the development of essential collaborative dialogue skills—fostering a community that cultivates the respectful and open exchange of ideas. Programming for students, faculty, and staff builds skills in such topics as empathetic listening, managing emotions, navigating conversations, and finding points of connection.
