Initiative on Campus Dialogues visits First Year Experience

On Monday Oct 23, Hilary Bogert-Winkler, Brendan Kane and Dana Miranda led a dialogue exercise with the training class for FYE Mentors (EPSY 3020). The goal was to give the experience of intellectually humble, structured dialogue and then discuss best practices for implementation. Our great thanks to the 140 or so undergraduate Mentors – wishing you all best! – and to Sarah Scheidel (FYE Program Manager) for the invitation. We look forward to continued partnership.
