Campus Conversations

Campus Conversations, a dialogue-based initiative from the Task Force on Inclusion and Belonging at Columbia, is centered on building community, real conversation and dialogue across differences by offering students a way to talk about identity and community across campus.

Through Campus Conversations, students are trained to facilitate conversations on topics such as identity, race, community and other critical issues of our time. These students then host conversations with their peers using guides developed for them by University Life. Students, in consultation with University Life staff, are also welcome to develop their own conversation guides. Questions? Write to and we’d be happy to talk with you about Campus Conversations.

Campus Conversations also includes Campus Chats: short, fun conversations about life at Columbia and our evolving take on inclusion and diversity. Download the guide here.
