    CU Boulder is partnering with a group of CU students, staff and faculty, led by CIRES fellow Matthew Burgess, to organize a dialogue series aimed at building empathy and understanding across political and other divisions. A group of students, staff, and faculty, in collaboration with the CU Dialogues Program, meets monthly on Thursdays on Zoom. Regular participants so far have included faculty and staff, undergraduate and graduate students, plus community members, Regents, and other elected officials. We welcome all viewpoints and perspectives and fundamentally aim to better understand the issues and where each of us is coming from, not to "win" a debate on any particular topic. Learn more about the series here, or sign up via Google form here.
