"In life, we don't spend a lot of time with the people we disagree with. But in Sustained Dialogue, you're stuck with each other...You meet people you will not otherwise get to know. I find that people who come out of Sustained Dialogue are very experienced in finding out the reasons for why a person said a thing. And we have so many opportunities for misunderstanding on campus."
-Dr. Beverly Hawk, director of the Crossroads Community Center
