Difficult campus and classroom conversations

“There is no house like the house of belonging.”

—David Whyte, The House of Belonging

Conversations around hot topics can quickly escalate into heated arguments that impede learning, reflection, and dialogue. With preparation and thoughtful facilitation, however, conversations around controversial and sensitive issues can be transformative. The following resources are provided to help facilitators foster constructive conversations whether in the classroom or other campus settings.

This resource is an independent, impartial, informal, and confidential resource available to all members of the Boston University community. The Office provides a safe place to have off-the-record conversations about any kind of problem related to life at BU.
