“Dialogue provides a way of learning that cannot be accomplished solely in the classroom. Administrators and professors count on Sustained Dialogue to do what they cannot do.” Shirley Tilghman, President of Princeton University
University's Sustained Dialogue chapter began
as the first national SD student program in
2001 when Princeton students Teddy Nemeroff and
David Tukey approached Princeton trustee Hal
Saunders with the idea to start a campus
Their Own Words
“Sustained Dialogue is the best thing in the history of ever. I've become a more compelling speaker, a better leader, and most importantly a better listener. SD has taught me a very valuable lesson: It's really in details of how someone speaks and where you get to know a person."
-Osahon Okundaye, Princeton '12"As a former participant, moderator, and student leader of Princeton University’s Sustained Dialogue (SD) program, I have been fortunate to meet and interact with many diverse individuals, many of whom I consider to be good friends. I credit these friends and the SDCN with helping me to develop the skill set necessary to form meaningful relationships across racial, ethnic, religious, and sexual identities."
-Reggie Galloway, Princeton SD Alum“Last week’s training has definitely helped me better understand the power dynamic between my supervisor and me and to be a better and more conscientious coworker in general."
