Intergroup Relations

Alumni Spotlight: Brandon Colbert '07

Brandon Colbert graduated in 2007 and began his work with the Program on Intergroup Relations as a first year student through a dialogue class on socioeconomic status. He continued his involvement as a facilitator for dialogue classes on gender and SES as well as with the Youth Dialogues program in Metro Detroit. Brandon is currently commuting between Washington, D.C. and Michigan working on starting a new company called Awakening. We are honored that Brandon decided to devote so much of his time to IGR as an undergraduate and want our readers to know the incredible things that he has learned and is up to!

IGR Alumni Committee Update (December 2014)

This month, IGR hosted a meeting with Alumni Committee members from around the country. Members joined in person at the IGR office, by phone, and by video chat.  

Alumni were given updates on IGR's current happenings, such as the success of Giving Blueday and IGR's new IGR minor. The group spoke about the development of the IGR Alumni Community, including guidelines around logistics and membership.

Alumni Spotlight: Bari Rogoff '07

Bari Rogoff (’07) began her passion for the Program on Intergroup Relations (IGR) during her first year at U-M, when she participated in an IGR dialogue.  From there, she went on to facilitate three dialogues and co-founded CommonGround during her fourth year. We are so grateful that Bari chose to make IGR a part of her undergraduate experience and we wanted our readers to know little bit about Bari, her contributions to IGR, and how she uses dialogue in the “real world.”
