Once your group signs up, we’ll take it from there. Just sit back, relax. We got this.

We measure the impact and deliver the data to you.

After your group takes the Unify Challenge, the survey results are analyzed and compiled into an Impact Report.

The Unify Challenge.
For colleges.

Our programs equip students to have constructive conversations across different backgrounds and ideologies with evidence-based interactive experiences designed to encourage effective dialogue, promote civil discourse, and reduce contempt.

Taking the Unify Challenge provides students with the opportunity to get outside of their bubble for a meaningful conversation about real issues. Students learn how to:

  • Have productive discussions with people who are different from themselves

  • Process information in real time with a partner

  • Practice public speaking and understanding their audience

  • Disassemble stereotypes and preconceived notions

  • Focus on what unites us instead of what divides us

  • Think about shared goals for our country instead of fighting about tactics

WHAT professorS SAY

As a professor teaching political science and public policy, I work to help students find ways to develop innovative policy solutions in the face of daunting political challenges. Doing so requires rich political discussions that enable students to move beyond the chronic polarization and gridlock that characterize our political landscape.

The Unify Challenge provides a unique opportunity for students to connect with interlocutors whose positions differ from their own and to engage in authentic political discussion.

As a result, participants take an important first step toward finding the kind of common ground necessary for effective problem solving.”

The Unify Challenge provided an exceptional communication activity for our civic engagement students.  Our students reported that the experience provided valuable direct interaction with students from another part of the country and that they found common ground even where it wasn’t expected.”

a collegiate experience

In April, 2021, we paired students from Lone Star College-Tomball with Duke University to take the Unify Challenge.

Here’s what a few had to say about their experience...

“I really felt this challenge was a means of breaking chains within the political parties and showing people that we are more alike than not.”

Lucy T. | Athens, GA

“Especially for people who don’t interact that often with people of differing political beliefs, this is a good, safe way to engage with these people.”

David M. | Harlingen, TX

“This challenge was such a unique experience. Never before have I had such an in-depth conversation about my beliefs, let alone with a complete stranger. It’s an experience that I think everyone deserves to have and should have.”

Mikayla H. | Stockton, CA

"I think it’s helpful to get a perspective of the opposite aisle that doesn’t come from the media or political commentators – that is, it’s helpful to actually talk to someone with different beliefs than me, rather than just listening to people talk about them.”

Angus L. | Manchester, MO, IL
