Intergroup Relations

National Intergroup Dialogue Institute 2023

Dates: June 5-8, 2023
Registration: Closed / full
Modality: Virtual
Participant site: U-M Canvas (valid Institute registration and guest login required)

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.

Scope of programming

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 IGD 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.)


Registration is now full.

  • Team of 4 (highly recommended): $4500
  • Individual: $1350

We strongly recommend bringing teams of up to four individuals from your institution, as time will be dedicated to strategizing the development and support of programs at your particular institution. Additionally, we strongly recommend that undergraduate or graduate students attending the IGD Institute be accompanied by a faculty/staff member and/or be a part of an institutional team.

Registration for the IGD Institute has been limited to a maximum number of 60 people in order to ensure that we are able to meet the needs of all attendees.
