"Deliberative dialogue" refers to a face-to-face method of communication where a small, diverse group of individuals exchange ideas and opinions in search of the best solution to a public problem. This democratic style of engagement helps build civic capacities by teaching students how to come together and have productive discussions (not debates) about the most complex and often divisive social issues we encounter today. It teaches students to examine the facts, ask important questions, and look for common ground when developing solutions.

As part of WKU's International Education Week, the WKU Center for Citizenship & Social Justice will host Coming to America: A Deliberative Dialogue on Immigration, on November 8th, 2018 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM in the Multi-purpose Room of the Honors College & International Center (HCIC). 

 Immigration policy is a serious and complex issue that is deeply impacting indivudal lives and the health of our communities. Through the deliberative dialogue process, participants will examine facts on immigration, explore future considerations, and determine potential next steps for immigration policy. For more information on the Deliberative Dialogue model developed by the National Issues Forums, visit: https://www.nifi.org/en/issue-guide/coming-america
