About Sustained Dialogue

The Sustained Dialoguer (SD) process is a peacemaking process developed by Dr. Harold Sanders, an American diplomat who was instrumental in several Middle East peace processes.

At MIT, SD helps students develop their own dialogue skills while building relationships with their peers through sharing personal experiences. SD participants reflect on the experiences of others and learn to think critically about how they regard their own experiences and views on issues of diversity and equity.
