What is Intergroup Dialogue?

 

EDUC 202: Exploring Issues in Intergroup Dialogue is an intergroup dialogue (IGD) undergraduate course. Intergroup dialogues are facilitated small group experiences that bring students from different racial, ethnic, gender, and socioecononimic backgrounds to explore their commonalities and differences. Within these groups, students will also examine the nature and impact of social inequalities as well as 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 hot topics. The course also seeks to promote mutual understanding and collaboration across differences.
