Culture of Empathy Builder:  Mark Rosenblum

Mark Rosenblum and Edwin Rutsch: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy

Mark Rosenblum is Professor of History and Director of Center for Ethnic, Racial and Religious Understanding (CERRU) at Queens College, New York. CERRU inspires a generation of leaders who value cross-cultural engagement, listening, and empathy to inform positive social change.


"Building Empathy - One of the goals of the program is to increase studentsí ability to understand and empathize with a wide range of experience and opinion. During the dialogue sessions, our student facilitators lead groups of students in discussion regarding contentious issues on campus and in the community. Participants are encouraged to listen actively, and without judgment, even if they do not agree."
