What’s Happening with CommonGround?

The CommonGround program in IGR develops and facilitates short, interactive, peer-led workshops on various social identity and social justice topics for groups of undergraduate and graduate students. Our program has had an eventful summer and Fall semester in 2016, full of workshops and exciting updates.

From new staff to a program restructure, there have been a number of changes in CommonGround. Earlier in the semester, two staff members who oversaw CommonGround—Danny Alvarez (Program Manager) and Taryn Petryk (Assistant Director)—accepted new positions at the Residential Education program at Stanford University and the U-M Ross School of Business, respectively.
