What is Intergroup Dialogue?
Exporing Social / Cultural Differences and Commonalities is an intergroup dialogue (IGD) undergraduate course. Intergroup dialogues are facilitated small group experiences that bring students from different racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual orientations to explore their commonalities and differences. Within these groups, students will also examine the nature and impact of social inequalities and explore ways of working together toward greater equality and justice. Intergroup dialogue strives to promote sharing of personal experiences, meaningful conversations, and critical examination of social issues. The course also seeks to promote mutual understanding and collaboration across differences.
