Campus Cafe': Conversations that matter.

Our Campus Cafe' is a new way to talk together about things that matter to us as members of the Benedictine University at Springfield campus community. This site will hold information about upcoming events and summaries from past events. As a campus community member, come here to review the conversations and stay in touch with the issues that matter to you.


"We are not powerless to make a difference to the future of our families, our communities, our organizations, and our world. We have always brought forth the future through webs of personal commitments born through human conversation. By choosing to focus on questions worth asking we are changing the conversation. As we change the conversation, we are beginning to change our common future." - Juanita Brown, Co-developer of the World Cafe'.

What is the Campus Cafe'?

The Campus Cafe' (based on the World Cafe') is an approach for large groups to use in sharing dialogue and ideas and produce an overall summary statement about how the group thinks, feels and believes about issues that are important to them. It relies on the willingness of individuals to share fully and candidly about their personal perspective of the question at-hand.
