Alumni are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity today by submitting their 100-word biography. The biographies sections on our website account for almost one third of all website traffic. Dialogue Fellows, Faculty, and Associates have found this to be a valuable way to promote their current activities and create a web presence that exists within the dialogue brand. Unlike your pre-existing Semester in Dialogue bio, which is static, the biography you submit for the Centre for Dialogue website can be updated any time so that it always remains current.
For more information about how to submit a biography, see the instructions below:
The alumni biographies project replaces our summer Semester in Dialogue newsletter, which contained much of the same information in static, one-off PDF documents. Instead, we will be posting the profiles you submit to our website and refreshing them every time you provide updates. We also will publish occasional profiles in our Centre for Dialogue email newsletter, blog-style news feed, Facebook site, and Semester in Dialogue alumni blog.
You are welcome to submit your profiles to Linda starting immediately (firstname.lastname@example.org). Profiles should be 100 words or less, professional, and written in the 3rd person. Include information about your accomplishments, current activities or occupation, personal hobbies, and especially how the Semester in Dialogue supported you in reaching your goals. Note that we may edit for content and style before posting.
See the sample below for an example of appropriate profile style and content:
“Sam Learnsalot (Fall 2005: Health Issues and Ethics) is an urban planner with the City of Greensville. Sam specializes in determining the long-term environmental impacts of industrial and residential development. Dialogue is a critical component of his work, which requires him to understand complex viewpoints and imagine win-win solutions that meet the needs of community stakeholders. In his spare time, Sam plays the accordion for a community choir and collects antique stamps from Baltic-region countries.”
All the best,
-The Semester in Dialogue Team
