More than just food for thought:
Student-Only Dialogue Fosters Discussion of Diversity Issues
February 11, 2011
A series of posters about diversity were anonymously posted on campus sometime last year. The wide-range of responses induced young-student mediators to host a forum to discuss diversity and learn from one another. Young teenage mediators were able to effectively lead a conversation to increase awareness about diversity issues, although more conversation is always needed!
Mediation skills can be taught to people of all ages. Clearly, this is an example of how students used those mediation techniques to foster discussion among their peers on important issues.
