The IGD Institute

The National Intergroup Dialogue Institute (IGD Institute) is an annual opportunity for higher education professionals (faculty and staff) to learn the philosophy and model of IGR for the purposes of creating dialogue programs on their home campuses. This year The IGD Institute is scheduled for June 13-16, 2022, virtually.

IGR Celebrates End of Fall Term

Last term, students from across IGR dialogue courses came together for our final celebration, where they were honored with certificates and spoke about the impact of the program on their lives. Students shared stories of individual growth, a deeper sense of social understanding, and an appreciation for dialogue in not only their academic studies, but their personal development.

Anti-oppression Statement from IGR

The Program on Intergroup Relations (IGR) stands for the liberation of all people. We believe that none of us are free until all of us are free. IGR opposes all forms of oppression that result in the marginalization, exploitation, subjugation, violence and all forms of dehumanization against others on the basis of social identity, social group membership and positionality. IGR promotes social justice and the pursuit of “solutionary solutions” that “do the most good and the least harm for people, animals and the environment” (IHE 2008).
