At the University Club

Our Mission:

The Center for Global Dialogue
serves as a catalyst for non-partisan
discussion of challenging global issues
in order to promote active participation
in global civil society.

About Us

The Center for Global Dialogue is committed to engaging our community so that we can all have a better understanding of the critical global issues of our time and be able to generate an informed response.  Global issues are often ignored or examined superficially as they appear distant from our everyday lives.  Today’s reality is that we live in an increasingly globalized society, and what happens in distant parts of the world affects us all.  The issues range from poverty and international trade to military conflict and immigration; from environmental challenges to ongoing violations of human rights.  The list is endless, and isolation from these problems is simply no longer possible.  This makes it even more imperative that we take the time to both understand and engage in the affairs of our global community.

A National Grand Strategy

The event will focus on a proposal to create a new Grand Strategy for the United States that moves away from an outdated post-World War II model of Cold War containment and instead embraces a new approach that prioritizes economic and ecological sustainability, and multilateral diplomacy.
