CivicXChange is an innovative platform designed to boost undergraduate students' curiosity, bolster their confidence, and elevate their proficiency in constructive dialogue across social identity differences. While engaging with diverse AI avatars on divisive social issues, students exchange first-person narratives, get immediate coaching, and undergo personalized reflection. This process enables students to hone critical skills such as mutual understanding, intellectual humility, and self-awareness over time. CivicXChange's low-pressure and supportive training environment reduces the disproportionate educational burden on marginalized groups while easing the anxieties of majority groups. Ultimately, CivicXChange strengthens democracy by empowering students to adopt an inclusive approach to civic culture.
