Intergroup Relations

Alumni Spotlight: Bari Rogoff '07

Bari Rogoff (’07) began her passion for the Program on Intergroup Relations (IGR) during her first year at U-M, when she participated in an IGR dialogue.  From there, she went on to facilitate three dialogues and co-founded CommonGround during her fourth year. We are so grateful that Bari chose to make IGR a part of her undergraduate experience and we wanted our readers to know little bit about Bari, her contributions to IGR, and how she uses dialogue in the “real world.”
