The PDC is dedicated to training students in dialogue, deliberation, and facilitation skills in classes and workshops at various educational institutions where we work. Students who are trained in these skill sets then facilitate campus and community forums on a variety of issues including diversity appreciation, student success and college completion, environmental sustainability, food security, interfaith dialogues, and student engagement. Students also conduct community interviews, collecting input and data to inform various issues of importance to our communities. PDC provides internships to students to continue to develop our organizational capacity as well as the capacity of our communities for dialogue and deliberation on important topics.
