Navigating Political Passion

Wednesday, 9/28, CAS will host the fall Upstander Dialogue, “Navigating Political Passion,” facilitated by Journalism’s Professor Stephen Solomon.

The Upstander Dialogue series is now in its second year and is hosted by the CAS Dean’s Office once each semester to provide all NYU students with an open space to understand and discuss contemporary issues that are important to their experience, modeling civility through conversations and encounters with diverse perspectives on topical but challenging issues led by faculty experts. The structure of the event is simple and student-centric. The evening begins with an introduction to the issue by a faculty facilitator; students will then be led in small groups (10-12 students) by fellow student co-facilitators through a series of discussion questions. We will then come together to share our experiences and opinions as a group.

The Upstander Facebook is populated with relevant essays, articles, etc on the topic in the weeks approaching the Dialogue, to help inform the discussion.

NYU Talks:

NYU Together: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Organized by the NYU University Senate Advisory Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion. Lunch will be provided. Find more information here.


All men are created equal…yet even in the nation that held that truth to be self-evident, inequities abound. To approach this topic in all of its breadth and complexity, join some of NYU’s top minds in psychology, sociology, public health, social work and law in a Talk on Inequities that will touch on racism, health disparities and the burdens of climate change. Find more information here.


How can today’s campuses — long considered protected spaces of self-expression and activism — continue to foster critical dialogue when the issues at stake constrain those willing to engage? In a Talk where the topic of Space means more than physical location, the conversation will focus on what it means to teach and learn today in “spaces” under scrutiny by both faculty and students. Find more information here.
