University of Wisconsin–Madison

Dialogue Groups

The Multicultural Student Center and its partners provide opportunity and space for several identity-based in-community dialogue groups. The groups are intended for students who self-identify within a group in order for these traditionally marginalized groups to build community with each other. Groups are facilitated by student peers alongside university staff. Overall, the purpose of the groups are to create a space intended to center the lives, experiences, challenges, and unique narratives of students with a shared identity here at UW-Madison. Below is a list of groups that are currently meeting, and a short description of the identities for whom the groups are intended. Students are also encouraged to participate in opportunities to build relationship across identities throughout community building programs.
