Intergroup Dialogues

IGDI 101     Intergroup Dialogues: Race and Class  (2)

This course provides an avenue for students of all backgrounds and viewpoints to examine topics of power, privilege and inequality in society. Students consider how social identities condition the lived experience of Americans, and shape views on a range of social, cultural and political issues. The Intergroup dialogue method of communication will be taught and modeled by the instructors. Through the dialogic process, students will develop their public speaking, intentional listening, and logical thinking skills, and achieve a greater level of understanding of differences of opinion and belief around important social issues.
