Fostering Inclusivity Through Dialogue
Cultivating Community is a series that draws on mindful dialogue and creative thinking as the tools through which we can learn, understand, connect and grow. The initiative affirms SUNY Geneseo’s value for inclusivity, which we define as “fostering a diverse campus community marked by mutual respect for the unique talents and contributions of each individual.”
Each dialogue provides participants with the opportunity to voice their experience on a specific topic, learn from others’ perspectives, share innovative ideas and explore new possibilities.
The theme for the spring series is “Living Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.”
