As one result of my semester at Villanova University, the Center for Intercultural Dialogue has now signed a memorandum of understanding with the Waterhouse Family Institute. As described on their website, “The Waterhouse Family Institute (WFI) is founded on the principle that the study and practice of communication is inherently connected to issues of ethics and social justice, and that properly understood, communication is central to the creation of positive social change. WFI is housed within Villanova University’s Department of Communication in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.”
Dr. Bryan Crable is the Director of the WFI. Basically what this understanding means is that we will cooperate on, and seek joint grant funding for, several projects. More information will be posted to both websites as our discussions lead to specific activities.
