Taboo: eXtreme Dialogs
~ extreme dialogues ~

Students, Faculty, Staff and community members are all welcome.

No homework, no prep, just REAL conversations!

These "hot topic" dialogues incorporate techniques developed, and facilitated by the Office of Residential Life, Student Programs, the Counseling Center, Eliot House, and Dean of Students. Other staff, faculty, and student guest facilitators occasionally host the sessions.

At a TABOO dialogue, every effort is made to make space so that all personal perspectives on a topic can be shared. It's an "uncomfortable zone/safe space." A healthy place to explore ideas and feelings while leaning into your own sometimes uncomfortable growing edges. These dialogues are "one-offs" (you dont' need to enroll, or come for multiple sessions).  You can participate once or often.

Students, Staff, Faculty, and Community members are welcome.

To suggest a topic or recommend a facilitator drop an email to us - Taboo.
