Civil Discourse: Colleges Nationwide Look to Florida AtlanticWednesday, Dec 21, 2022
Naelys Luna, Ph.D., MSW, dean of the College of Social Work & Criminal Justice, and Michael Horswell, Ph.D., dean of the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts & Letters, were recently invited to present to more than 450 deans nationwide at the Council of Colleges of Arts & Sciences (CCAS) in Washington, D.C.
Drs. Luna and Horswell are the founding deans of the Breezeway Dialogues series at Florida Atlantic, which provides students the opportunity to discuss relevant and controversial topics while learning civil discourse best practices - a hallmark of higher education. Their conference presentation shared how the series was created and the philosophical tenets behind the initiative, positioning Florida Atlantic as the nation's torchbearer in this essential space.
