U.S.-Russia Peer-to-Peer Dialogue Program

A collaboration between Colorado State University and Tomsk Polytechnic University

"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."Walt Disney

The purpose of the project is to involve younger generations into the spread of fundamental and universal values, such as respect among cultures and harmony among people, in order to develop and promote intercultural dialogue. Students from both countries/universities have been working in mixed groups researching and exploring places in both geographical regions, learning to understand each other to complete the task as well as learning from each other about their values, habits, and other “hidden” aspects of the “small” culture that are often left unnoticed by anyone who does not belong to a specific cultural/ social group. This website documents our experiences throughout the program and features projects completed by participants.
