Intergroup Relations

Integrating IGR Skills Into Medical Field Experience

by Nicole Rixen, IGR Graduate Intern

When many people think about IGR, they immediately think about social justice. While it is true that IGR provokes us to think about social justice both on and off campus, I feel IGR provides so much beyond just understanding social justice. For example, when I talk with students, they tell me about all the skills and tools that they have gained and can use throughout their careers and lives.

Off The Cuff: Identity Politics on TV

March 2015
 
In a new 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.

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!

Want To Learn More About IGR's Alumni City Clubs?

Alumni often ask how they can continue their connection to IGR.  One way is to meet with other IGR alums in their area to create or join a “City Club” or regional collection of IGR alums.  These clubs meet independently and are supported by IGR for marketing and communication purposes.  We would love for you to reconnect with IGR and other alums near you!
