Experience a full week of online Common Ground for Action (CGA) deliberative forums exclusively for college students. The National Week of Deliberation forum series aims to connect college students from across the country in deliberation in a way that maximizes the opportunity to hear different views and opinions from peers attending college in different parts of the nation. Any student from any college can register to participate. Forums are moderated by college students, making this a peer-driven deliberative experience.
Here’s how it works:
There are five forums scheduled during the week – one per day at various times. You can participate in one or more forums that fit your interest and schedule. REGISTER HERE for the forum/s of your choice; visit the links below for more information about each Forum. The day before the forum, registered students will receive an email with a link to the forum lobby and a copy of the issue guide. Please (please, please, please!) read the guide and/or watch the introductory video before your forum. We will be moving participants into forums manually so we can have as much geographic and campus size diversity as possible.
