Intergroup Relations

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.

Off The Cuff: Food and Identity

October 2015

In this ongoing feature, we ask IGR students and alumni each month for their opinion on a fun question that relates to issues that are discussed within IGR's courses and co-curricular activities.This month's question is: "We don't always think about how food can be very connected to identity, and interactions amongst different identities. What identity issues do you see unfolding around the different foods students on campus eat and the reasons behind what they eat?
