ROOTED (Respecting Ourselves and Others Through Empathy and Dialogue) is dedicated to creating spaces of solidarity, empathy, and learning for members of the Columbia community to explore identity, power, and privilege. Led by trained student facilitators, ROOTED hosts respectful and informed discussions about diversity and explores the commonalities and disparities among the social and political treatment of different groups in society. ROOTED facilitators lead open dialogues through the ROOTED Dinner & Dialogue series, plan an annual week centered on allyship, and work with student organizations, residences, and other constituencies to create tailored dialogue-based programming.
