Fond Farewell: A7med Alawami

IGR would like to send a fond farewell to A7med (Ahmed) Alawami, a long-time IGR community member. A7med has had a tremendous impact on the program through his commitment in many different avenues of IGR involvement including teaching, research, alumni outreach, and dialogue participation/facilitation. Most recently, A7med served as an instructor for IGR's Practicum in Intergroup Dialogue Facilitation course. A7med is moving to California and will soon be joined by his family.



IGR Alumna Stephanie Chang Makes History in Michigan State Legislature

In November 2014, U-M Alumna Stephanie Chang was elected to serve a two-year term in the Michigan House of Representatives, representing District 6 (Detroit along the river, River Rouge, and Ecorse). What makes Chang’s election to office unique is her distinction of being the first Asian American female elected to the Michigan legislature. Chang’s recent accomplishment is preceded by an impressive list of achievements in academia and in her community, all of which utilized her passion for public affairs and social issues.
