Engage Your World: Intercultural Dialogue Series began in September of 2009 as a collaborative effort between the Claude Pepper Center for Intercultural Dialogue and the Center for Global Engagement. It brings together diverse groups of students, faculty, and staff to engage in a conversation about the global challenges we all face today.

The broad scope of Engage Your World provides space for everyone to engage in a respectful conversation, where differences in opinion are not only encouraged but necessary for a deep and meaningful dialogue.

A special thanks to our additional program affiliates: Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, Washington DC; the Department of Modern Languages & Linguistics; and the Winthrop-King Institute.
