Intergroup Relations


Community of Scholars

The IGR Community of Scholars (CoS) brings together a small, select cohort of faculty and staff across the University of Michigan each year who are invested in incorporating Intergroup Dialogue, dialogic practices, and/or social justice education into their work in a way that will directly or indirectly serve students.

IGR Insight Handouts

The IGR Insight handouts offer 11-pages of invaluable resources for those considering applying dialogic techniques on campus and beyond.


Consultations and Training

IGR faculty and staff offer consultations for colleagues that are outside of the University of Michigan (U-M) to advance intergroup relations education across the country. In addition, faculty and staff offer diversity and intergroup relations training tailored to the needs of public and private institutions.
