We follow a workshop request process so that your experience as requesters meets your expectations and addresses the growing needs of our campus.
Our CommonGround program is one way that student organizations, residence halls, Greek life, academic courses, and other campus communities can request programs that raise awareness about social identities (race, gender, socioeconomic status, etc.), prejudice, stereotyping, power, privilege, and oppression. Facilitated and coordinated by trained U-M undergraduate and graduate students, these interactive workshops help promote social identity development and enhance group dynamics, while building a community of social justice advocates on campus.
Workshops are designed around a 1.5 to 3 hour time frame and are customized to your group's needs. If you don't see a topic that interests you, please let us know and we can work with you to explore various opportunities. We request that all workshops be requested three weeks prior to the event.
If you are a student interested in joining the CommonGround community as a facilitator or coordinator, please fill out this interest form for more information.
