Institute for Constructive Advocacy and Dialogue

Dr. Lori Britt

Dr. Lori L. Britt, Assistant Professor School of Communication

Dr. Britt's research projects focus on understanding how communities and organizations go about the business of charting future courses of action and how different communicative structures and participatory and collaborative practices can aid in making those plans more inclusive and representative of multiple stakeholders and perspectives. In addition, her work has looked at the negotiation and management of identity in various group and organizational settings, from private to public. Dr. Britt has experience facilitating deliberation, dialogue and visioning processes for governmental and non-profit agencies. She has taught a service-learning course entitled "Facilitating Community Dialogue" that resulted in student teams creating and facilitating dialogues for community nonprofits who wished to involve members, stakeholders, or the general community in discussions regarding community needs and ways those needs might be met collaboratively.
