In divisive times, it is more important than ever to provide spaces where complex and competing ideas can be discussed in the context of civility and respect. We believe that having such conversations is possible if we can affirm the dignity of all participants and accommodate the possibility of conflict. This discussion series, “Disagreeing on Difficult Issues,” is meant to help create space for these discussions on our campus.

Partners include Emelia Benjamin, associate provost of faculty development and diversity for the Medical Campus, and Rafael Ortega, associate dean for diversity and inclusion at the School of Medicine.
