Difficult Dialogues seminars are distinctive in their focus on teaching students the skills they need to participate in constructive dialogue about controversial and potentially divisive issues.
To date UT faculty have developed fourteen Difficult Dialogue courses, most of which are part of the First-Year Signature Course program for entering students. Public Forums focusing on current controversial topics complement the courses and engage a broader public. The program also offers workshops and resources for Difficult Dialogues faculty.
