1. Connect

Dorm Room Diplomacy's virtual exchanges connect students from around the world, and our university chapters organize on-campus programming to connect students with their university community. Our inter-chapter events also bring together students across universities for dialogue workshops and special programs.

2. Discuss

Dorm Room Diplomacy utilizes discussion as a tool for both education and relationship-building. We welcome diverse perspectives, placing a strong emphasis on listening to others as a way of understanding the underlying values and beliefs that motivate divergent opinions.


3. Engage

Dorm Room Diplomacy uses its videoconferences as a starting point for engagement. As a student-driven organization, we rely on continued student leadership for facilitation, event-planning, and recruiting.
