Intergroup Relations

IGR's Student Engagement Team

April 2015

If you've been to an IGR study break, gotten your photo on our Community Wall (called "The Many Faces of IGR"), engaged in IGR's conversation nights (such as the one on yoga and cultural appropriation), or been involved as a student in any way this past semester, then you've probably interacted with IGR's Student Engagement Team!

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.
