Since 2011 the Campus Advocacy Network has worked in close partnership with UIC’s Dialogue Initiative. Dr. Rebecca Gordon and Daniel K. Cairo served as dialogue facilitators for the Honors 140 pilot class.
Aside from providing facilitators, UIC’s Dialogue Initiative continues to provide meaning guidance and influence to CAN’s violence prevention programs — by giving it a unique model of engagement through the use of dialogues. CAN’s flagship Peers to Allies program has been greatly enhanced with these dialogue methods because they’ve brought new strategies for engaging topics of power, privilege, and oppression when addressing gender base violence.
