What is Dine & Dialogue?

Dine & Dialogue is weekly socials and discussion sessions hosted weekly by the MSC this Fall. Every social is connected with a discussion during the same week. Each social and discussion is intended for different racial/ethnicity/gender based groups. At the socials, students will be able to connect and build community, and at the discussion, they will focus on a hot topic that surrounds the community.

All Socials: 6:30PM in MSC Lounge
All Discussions: 6:30PM in MSC Classroom


A Place at the Table is one of the staple events the MSC hosts every semester. This community meal, about 3-4 times a semester, focuses on community building around a good meal. This has grown to be one of the most well attended events hosted by the MSC. We always welcome new students to the space to share in fellowship and a good meal.

DATES: Oct 24, Nov 28

TIME: 6:00-8:00PM

LOCATION: MSC Lounge, Red Gym

Steepin' It Real is a monthly discussion series hosted by the MSC to give students a space to process and share on a monthly topic while enjoying coffee, tea, and snacks. Free and open to all! For questions or to request accommodations, contact Tito at


This discussion group is broader in scope and is an as needed program.

When current issues arise on our campus, MSC staff facilitate a space or dialogue with students and community members to process whatever is going on in real time. Is there something going on that you think our campus community needs to be engaging? Fill out this form and tell us what the current issue/topic is, and we will work with you to create that space for this intentional conversation. Tea and snacks will be provided by the MSC.
