Intergroup Relations

Welcome letter from the Co-Directors

Welcome to The Program on Intergroup Relations at the University of Michigan. IGR at U-M is the oldest program of its kind in higher education, and we pride ourselves not only on being student-focused but also for generously supporting the development of similar programs across the country.

Co-Directors Donna Rich Kaplowitz and Monita C. Thompson

Community of Scholars

The IGR Community of Scholars (CoS) brings together a small, select cohort of faculty and staff across the University of Michigan each year who are invested in incorporating Intergroup Dialogue, dialogic practices, and/or social justice education into their work in a way that will directly or indirectly serve students.

IGR stands in solidarity with the Black community

It has been seven days since four police officers in Minneapolis murdered George Floyd, an unarmed black man in broad daylight. In the last week, we have witnessed a global uprising coalesce in response to this extrajudicial murder of yet another innocent Black man in our country’s 400-year history of murdering Black folks. We have watched as our president has instigated increasing bellicosity and has threatened what amounts to martial law in response to the uprising. And we have witnessed all this while living through a pandemic of generational and global impact that has also disproportionately impacted some in our country more than others, particularly people of color and low-income folks.


IGR Insight Handouts

The IGR Insight handouts offer 11-pages of invaluable resources for those considering applying dialogic techniques on campus and beyond.
