U.S.-Mideast Dialogue Project (2007-2016)

The U.S.-Mideast Dialogue Project seeks to promote greater understanding between the United States and the Middle East by promoting dialogue, civic diplomacy, and cultural exchanges. The project organizes student and faculty exchange programs, sponsors lectures,seminars and workshops, supports community projects and seeks forums for dialogue and engagement. For example, the project has held a number of events related to Syria, including a lecture series on "The Literature and Art of Hope: The Damascus Spring Writers and Artists" and hosted a visiting delegation of students from Syria. Currently, the project is also focusing on social movements in the Middle East.
