Student Experience Team (SET)

August 2018

We’re excited to announce that IGR’s Student Engagement Team will now be called the Student
Experience Team (SET). Why, you ask? It’s because we’re all about your student experience! Don’t
worry, we’ll still build community (like “The Many Faces of IGR” installation), put on programs and
initiatives that you want (like our past Fall Open House events), and check-in with you to see how
we’re doing.

Many faces of IGR

Intergroup Relations Skills Are Useful Everywhere!

by Nicole Rixen, IGR MSW Intern

April 2015

One of the best parts about interning at IGR is the amount of overlap that happens between this program and other groups around campus. This semester, not only did I start my work at IGR, I also joined the Michigan Ballroom Dance Team. During my interactions with a team of over 200 people, I have had the privilege of meeting other people who are not only passionate about dance, but about social justice as well.

Nicole Rixen and dance partner show off their dance talents.
