About Conversation Center
Building an Inclusive Iowa One Conversation at a Time
Our trained undergrad conversation partners offer free, one-on-one conversation appointments. These 1/2- or hour-long appointments are informal--an opportunity to build social skills, networking skills, or just get to know someone beyond your current circle. We welcome all Iowa affiliated staff, faculty, students, scholars, and family.
Appointments available M-F 9am-7:30pm during the middle 10 weeks of Fall and Spring Semester (week 4-13), and during the 8-week Summer Session.
To make an appointment, visit https://clas.uiowa.edu/rhetoric/conversation-center. Be sure to choose "Conversation Center" from the drop-down menu.
What to Expect:
Dedicated partners work to build informal and intercultural communication skills with you. Our focus is on conversation as a balanced interaction where both parties speak, ask questions, and build active listening skills. Talk about education, your family, your home, Iowa City, the future, politics, culture, etc.
