About

A selection of photos depicting various activities of the two chapters of the Dialogue Society student clubs at UCLA and UCI.
Established in 1997, Dialogue Society is a student club with three active chapters at UCLA, UCI and USC.

Guided by the belief that there is always a better version of oneself, Dialogue Society aims to enrich the lives of communities. Our purpose is to educate the community through meaningful dialogues on healthy, purposeful and mindful living—free from promoting political affiliations or religious beliefs—to discover what inspires us towards personal development. We move forward by the motto of “Dialogue. Discover. Develop.”
