Registration for the 2022 Virtual Institute will open on March 15, 2022. Please subscribe to The Institute mailing list if you are interested in receiving information about the 2022 National Intergroup Dialogue Institute when that becomes available.


A note about Institute registration: We would like to open up as much space as possible for attendees from colleges and universities who have never or rarely sent participants to the Institute. Upon submitting your registration, if we note that you are affiliated with a college or university that has sent participants to the Institute multiple times in recent history, we will follow up with you to discuss our approach and your options for this year in more detail. If you have any questions, please contact

The National Intergroup Dialogue Institute (The 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 Institute will be held virtually from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. ET on June 13-16, 2022.

Join us in learning about intergroup dialogue and how you might use it at your institution!

  • Learn and understand intergroup dialogue pedagogy (The Michigan Model)
  • Engage participants in experiential learning commonly used in intergroup dialogue
  • Explore and strategize the development and support of academic and co-curricular dialogue programs and dialogic learning to fit your campus needs

While we will engage in interactive activities, the purpose of The Institute is to demonstrate the curriculum and structure of intergroup dialogue.

The Institute provides support and skills for applying the pedagogy on home campuses. (This is NOT a Train-the-Trainer Institute. Time does not permit formal facilitator training, although there is a discussion of next steps in this regard.)
