Frostburg’s Sustaining Campus and Community Dialogue Series

Next Frostburg Sustaining Campus and Community Dialogue April 29

The Frostburg Sustaining Campus and Community Dialogue Series’ final session of the semester, “Respecting Each Other: A Dialogue About Race Relations,” will be held at the Lyric Theater at 20 E. Main St. on Tuesday, April 29, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The dialogue is free and open to anyone in the Frostburg community interested in discussing the topic.

The dialogue series has aimed to strengthen community relationships and foster civility and collaborative problem-solving in Frostburg. Supported by FSU, the Maryland Judiciary’s Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office and Mountainside Community Mediation Center since spring 2012, the dialogue sessions convene students, year-round residents, local officials and University leaders to discuss issues and create new opportunities for collaborative problem-solving and coalition-building in Frostburg. In this second year of the series, community members are working toward tangible solutions for deeper level, sensitive and structurally challenging town-and-gown tensions that bring about safe, secure living conditions and civil relationships between long- and short-term residents in the college town.
