The National Intergroup Dialogue Institute is an annual opportunity for higher education professionals—faculty and staff—to learn the philosophy and model of IGR for the purposes of creating dialogue programs on their home campuses.

Scope of program

The Institute provides support and skills for applying the pedagogy on home campuses. 

Column 2

Join us in learning about intergroup dialogue and how you might use it at your institution!

  • Learn and understand intergroup dialogue pedagogy (the Michigan Model)
  • Engage participants in experiential learning commonly used in intergroup dialogue
  • Explore and strategize the development and support of academic and co-curricular dialogue programs and dialogic learning to fit your campus needs

Please note: This is not a train-the-trainer institute nor a facilitator training (though there is some discussion of how this fits in). While we will engage in interactive activities, the purpose of the National Intergroup Dialogue Institute is to demonstrate the curriculum and structure of intergroup dialogue.
