Paul Macey

UCLA School of Nursing Professor Dr. Paul Macey is one of just 16 UCLA instructors selected for the inaugural cohort of the Dialogue across Difference (DaD) Faculty Fellow Program. 

According to the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, which manages the initiative, DaD aims to model and promote the values of intellectual engagement, curiosity, empathy, active listening and critical thinking through a series of campus events, classes, informal learning opportunities and social programming. The year-long fellowship is designed to help instructors incorporate the DaD values into their course materials and teaching practices. 

“How do you talk with someone you disagree with? And why bother,” said Dr. Macey. “I believe discussing our different views leads us to better decisions and brings respect to our organization’s culture. The trick is how to get to dialogue and figuring that out is why I joined the Dialogue across Difference Faculty Fellows Program.”
