IGR Student Engagement Team Continues to Bring IGR Community Together

This semester, the Student Engagement Team focused on opening up the physical IGR space to more students on campus. With the CommonGround programming team, we coordinated ​three different open dialogues, one revolving around gun safety, one about cultural appropriation in Halloween costumes, and one about anti-blackness and the events at the University of Missouri. We arranged these dialogues so that they would be topical - hosting each either before or after a major event relating to the dialogue's topic.
