Intergroup Relations

IGR will offer the 7th Annual Intergroup Dialogue National Institute from June 19-22, 2013. The Institute is designed for faculty and staff nationwide who are interested in starting intergroup dialogues or are expanding and assessing programs that are already in place at their colleges and universities.

As this year marks the 25th Anniversary of IGR, we will also take time to reflect on the history of intergroup dialogue at U-M and the impact it has had across the country. The institute is open to individuals in U-M departments or at other institutions nationwide.

The goals of the Institute are to:

  • 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. Facilitator and “train the trainer” workshops are not included as part of this Institute.
