Sustained Dialogue

Northwestern Sustained Dialogue

Sustained Dialogue (SD) is a student-facilitated program that encourages conversation across lines of difference with other Northwestern students.

Students participate in weekly 90-minute sessions throughout the quarter.


All SD moderators must undergo a two day training and must have participated in at least one SD session. Each session is moderated by two students.

Summer 2014 and Fall 2014 Sessions

The application for Sustained Dialogue sessions in both Summer Quarter and Spring Quarter is now open.
