Event Details

Join us to learn about the St. Philip’s College students that have been selected as Fellows for a new national partnership regarding civic dialogue.

Eight students from St. Philip’s College have been named Inaugural Fellows by the Intercollegiate Civil Disagreement Partnership (ICDP), which is a new consortium of five institutions: California State University, Bakersfield, CA; Harvard University, Cambridge, MA; St. Philip’s College, San Antonio, TX; Santa Fe College, Gainesville, FL; and Stanford University, Stanford, CA.

The funding for the student Fellows from St. Philip’s College is from the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University, which seeks to strengthen teaching and research about pressing ethical issues.

The Fellows are participating in a fully remote program that enables them to develop skills to engage and facilitate conversations across political differences at their respective colleges and universities. The students will receive training in facilitation, engage in deliberative conversations within the Fellows group, and have opportunities to interact with speakers from different sectors over the course of the academic year.

In addition to acquiring real-world skills to become practitioners in facilitating civil disagreement, Fellows will have special opportunities to interact with the community of scholars connected to the ICDP.
