The Program on Intergroup Relations hosts a National Intergroup Dialogue Institute annually for faculty and staff who wish to learn our philosophy and techniques for the purpose of creating dialogue programs on their own campuses.
The next National Institute will be held June 23rd - 26th, 2014 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Join us in learning about intergroup dialogue and how you might use it at your institution!
Explore the overall dialogue framework and The Michigan Model
Strategize the development and support of academic and co-curricular programs
Participate in engaging activities commonly used in intergroup dialogue settings
While we will engage in interactive activities, the purpose of this Institute is to demonstrate the curriculum and structure of intergroup dialogue.
The Institute provides support and skiils for applying the pedagogy on home campuses. (Time does not permit formal facilitator training, although there is discussion of next steps in this regard.)
The 2014 Institute agenda has not yet been finalized.
We recommend bringing teams from your institution, as time will be dedicated to strategizing the development and support of programs at your particular institution. Additionally, we strongly recommend that undergraduate or graduate students attending the institute be accompanied by a faculty/staff member and/or be a part of an institutional team.
Registration for the Institute has been limited to a maximum number of 60 people in order to ensure that we are able to meet the needs of all attendees. Please contact IGR before registering if you plan on bringing more than 6 people from your institution or program to the Institute.
Registration rates include:
4 day attendance
Lunch on all days
Snacks during breaks
A flash drive with all of the institute power point presentations, many of our exercises/activities, our complete dialogue curriculum, and other training information and assesment tools
A DVD video describing our intergroup dialouge program (1 per institution, 2 for institutions with more than 4 participant registrations)
Your institution/national program would be responsible for airfares and housing in Ann Arbor.
