Intergroup Relations

The new semester is blowing in like a polar vortex for the CommonGround team. The team plans to start the semester off with a bang as we hold our winter term training retreat from January 17-19th. New workshop facilitators and student coordinators will attend and receive the training they need to go out and represent the CommonGround program--just in time, as we already have several workshop requests lined up. 

We would also like to send our best wishes to the Program Manager, Noor Ali. She will be taking a position as Assistant Director of Multicultural Student Affairs at Northwestern University and will be leaving at the end of this month. 
Be sure to stop by and say goodbye to Noor!

We will be taking our annual hiatus from workshops from September 1st - October 5th, 2016 while we train our new staff and facilitators. We would love to work with your group after October 5th!  Thanks for your understanding.

  • The general purpose of these workshops is to create interactive spaces to engage in dialogue about social justice and social identity.
