Millsaps College Dialogue Circles
Karen Quay from Jackson 2000, Susan Womack from Millsaps College and Noel Didla from Jackson State University share the success they had introducing Dialogue Circle discussions this Fall for incoming Freshman at Millsaps College.
‘In October, Millsaps held a five-week series of Dialogue Circles with 50% of the Millsaps freshman class (over 100 students). With assistance from Jackson 2000, the existing dialogue circle curriculum was condensed to fit their timeframe as well as tweaked to best engage college-age students.
The nine groups of students had racial diversity in each group and a good mix of gender, socioeconomic, religious, and public / private school diversity. Facilitators included Millsaps faculty and staff plus Noel Didla from JSU.
