    schema:description "This book addresses growing concerns about polarization around controversial issues on American college and university campuses. Its aim is to provide a theory-to-practice model of conversation for the entire college campus that will enable all constituencies to engage in productive and civil dialogue on the most difficult and controversial social, religious, political, and cultural topics. This is done using a proven, successful process that the authors call moral conversation. Through concrete frameworks, ground rules, and examples this approach--moral conversation--will teach readers how to justify, create, set up and facilitate respectful and engaging conversations about even the most controversial topics. The book includes both in-classroom and out-of-classroom settings across campus, and it speaks to faculty, student affairs staff, administrators, and students in all campus venues."@en ;
