Courageous Dialogue Series

​​​The Courageous Dialogue Series is an innovative, media-based dialogue project regarding race, equity, and diversity models. The project highlights the narratives of students, faculty, staff, and alumni within the DePaul community. Using testimonies and a storytelling framework, this media project centers on ​social justice and equity issues through personal testimonials to promote open dialogue about diversity literacy.

The Courageous Dialogue Series is supported by The Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity (OIDE) at DePaul University. The project was created and directed by Associate Professor Chi Jang Yin, DePaul Presidential Fellow, 2020–2021. For more information, contact Chi Jang Yin, cyin1@depaul.
