The strength and effectiveness of Hollings Center programs derives from its unique blend of participants and partners. Since its inception in 2004, the Center has carefully crafted a balance of backgrounds and viewpoints for the promotion of better dialogue.
Our dialogues bring together a geographically diverse group of participants and partners to build networks and promote cross-cultural understanding.
Dialogue participants and partners represent a wide array of expertise and disciplines. This carefully crafted balance opens minds to new ideas and opportunities.

Almost all participants responding to the survey report continued contact with their fellow dialogue participants. Hear directly from participants themselves what they have to say about our programs:
