Intergroup Relations

Intergroup Dialogues

ALA 122/SOC 122/PSYCH 122

(2 credits)

In Intergroup Dialogues, students will participate in semi-structured face-to-face meetings across different social identity groups led by peer facilitators. Though topics will vary by semester, topics may include race, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, religion, and educational justice

What is CommonGround?

Our CommonGround program is one way that student organizations, residence halls, fraternity and sorority 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.
