Sponsored by the Difficult Dialogues Initiative of the Ford Foundation. Supported by the Simpson Center for the Humanities and the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Washington.
Difficult Dialogues is a program designed to promote academic freedom and religious, cultural, and political pluralism on college and university campuses in the United States. Currently, 43 institutions are implementing projects that address these issues. While all projects seek to prepare students to constructively engage with difficult and sensitive topics, the projects address a wide range of substantive areas. These include topics such as: fundamentalism and secularism, racial and ethnic relations, the Middle East conflict, religion and the university, sexual orientation, and academic freedom
