On Common Ground

“True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness. True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.” 

― Brené Brown, Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone

"We roar loudest when roar On Common Ground."

Featured Work

The On Common Ground Monologues Project

On Common Ground Monologues is an annual event for ISU students to share their experiences. We will celebrate identity and, together, discover opportunities for improving equity and inclusion here at Idaho State University. 


You do not have to be an expert writer or artist. No one will be excluded on the basis of skill or experience. We want your words and your experiences, and we do not expect perfection. 

In December 2023, Idaho State University will begin collecting submissions for the first On Common Ground Monologues publication. The publication for year one will be housed digitally. We aim to provide physical copies of the publication in future years. 

If you would like to learn more about what you can submit for this project, refer to our Submissions Guidelines page.

This event is coordinated by the Diversity Resource Center. We are dedicated to fostering a community that nurtures and appreciates diverse identities while discovering what makes us all a part of the Bengal community. We welcome opportunities to partner with student organizations and departments on campus.  

This event is sponsored by Idaho State University's Department of Student Affairs as part of the On Common Ground Initiative with the support of the Office of Equity and Inclusion.
