Initiatives: Difficult Dialogues
The Difficult Dialogues program at Clark is a campus-wide initiative aimed at developing skills and awareness of dialogue—encouraging engagement across differences in both our classrooms and community.
Clark was one of 27 institutions selected by the Ford Foundation from 730 colleges and universities nation-wide to participate in this initiative—of which the Higgins school was an original co-sponsor, along with the department of International Development, Community and Environment (IDCE).
