IGR is pleased to announce that the Mark Chesler Library in the IGR office (1214 S. University Ave.) is now a pickup site for the University of Michigan's Interlibrary Loan (ILL)  and 7FAST services. This means that library patrons who request a book through these systems may now indicate that they would like the item sent to the Mark Chesler Library for pickup.

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.”
