Walk and Talk Wednesdays are a weekly opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate students to engage in civic dialogue with their peers. From 3:00-5:00 PM each Wednesday afternoon, students can meet to discuss reflection questions with another student.
Over the last several days, our campus community has been rattled and called to grapple with challenging civic questions about symbols, speech, protest, identity, power, and safety. These are difficult conversations with multiple layers and perspectives that will no doubt take time to peel back. We invite you to start, or even continue, these conversations at a special Walk & Talk Wednesday, where we will pose some big questions circling our WashU campus community.
Join the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement and Center for Diversity and Inclusion outside Schnuck Pavilion today from 3-5 PM CST. Ground yourself in principles of civic dialogue, connect with your peers over snacks, and engage with this civic moment for our WashU community. Dialogue must start with seeking to understand and honor the full humanity of all members of our community.
This event is for current students of the WashU community.
We recognize some will be observing Yom Kippur, while others may not feel safe being physically on campus. We invite you to use these questions to talk with others at Walk and Talk Wednesday or elsewhere this week.
