Critical Dialogues in Higher Education Program

The Critical Dialogues in Higher Education Program at Texas A&M University aims to build capacity for engaging in effective communication, encourage productive conflict management, and support a skill set for handling difficult dialogues with a focus on intact work groups. The program objectives are to:

  • Create a cadre of trained facilitators for the campus community.
  • Increase skill sets and preparedness of administrators, faculty, staff, and students to encounter critical dialogues constructively both internal to their units and external to the university environment.
  • Engage the campus community in dialogue around sensitive topics and issues.
  • Facilitate recognition by individuals that their experiences, mental models, thoughts, and fears can impact dialogue.


Each workshop has four modules:

Workshops 101, 201, 301, 401
