Popular in the news lately has been the controversy surrounding the DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.  The focus for the conversation on September 27 will be "Understanding DACA: Is The Dream Dead?". 

Please come out and engage as one of the missions of this #ECUnited initiative is to create an institutional culture that welcomes and nourishes difficult conversations throughout university life.

The Division of Student Affairs launched Cupola Conversations last year and will continue in Fall 2017.  The program aims to create informal opportunities for the university community to engage in constructive dialogue about various topics, some of which may be controversial and potentially provocative.

The Cupola Conversation will be held in a Town Hall style format as well as streamed live on Facebook Live.  The program features a panel discussion about civil discourse.. Panelists will share opinions and thoughts about what they believe is needed to engage in better, more constructive, conversations about a specific topic or general concept.

The objective is to promote a shared understanding of the value of diversity across the spectrum and to create and maintain a civil, welcoming campus climate for everyone.  Additionally, this initiative will serve to create an institutional culture that welcomes and nourishes difficult conversations throughout university life.
