Working Group
Campus Discourse Initiative

Smith College is hosting a series of events, on campus and off, to examine, strengthen and enrich campus discourse. The Campus Discourse Initiative is guided by a working group of faculty, students and staff, appointed by President Kathleen McCartney. Through education and dialogue, their goal is to foster understanding of the responsibilities and challenges of civil discourse, creating a campus community that welcomes widely divergent views and cherishes dissent as essential to education.
