The Sustained Dialogue Campus Network (SDCN) is a project of the International Institute for Sustained Dialogue (IISD). In 1999, students began using a unique process called Sustained Dialogue (SD) to proactively improve race relations on college campuses. A network of Sustained Dialogue practitioners has since formed, connecting students at over a dozen colleges, universities, and high schools across the country. This network, called the Sustained Dialogue Campus Network, represents a budding social movement of passionate students deeply engaged in changing the dynamics of their campus climate.

SDCN supports groups of students interested in initiating, moderating, and institutionalizing Sustained Dialogue, an organic five- stage process that addresses strained relationships to improve communities.
