The "Courageous Conversations" series is based on the work of Glenn Singleton, whose book by the same name was selected for the 2010 Diversity Summit of the University System of Georgia. Out of that summit and keynote address by Singleton, Georgia Highlands College developed its own open series of lectures, discussions, presentations, and development, designed to spur critical thinking and meaningful dialogue about the sometimes difficult topics we face inside the classroom and in our campus communities. We believe, like Singleton, that it takes courage to have these conversations, but that what we learn from one another is more than worth the potential difficulty of exploring these issues.
"We must be the change we wish to see in the world." ~Mahatma Gandhi
