Intergroup Dialogues are 2-credit courses carefully structured to explore social group identity, conflict, community, and social justice. Each dialogue involves identity groups defined by race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic class, gender, sexual orientation, ability status, or national origin. Each identity group is represented in the dialogue by a balanced number of student participants, usually 5-7 participants from each group. We also offer dialogues where only participants from the same identity groups are placed in the dialogues. These are called intragroup dialogues. Trained student facilitators — one from each represented identity group — encourage dialogue rather than debate. Students examine and discuss reading materials that address issues and experiences relevant to the groups in the dialogue, in relation to both the University setting and general society. All of our dialogue courses focus on power imbalances within and between social identity groups. Facilitators and participants explore similarities and differences among and across groups, and strive toward building a multicultural and democratic community. Past Dialogues have included: Multiracial, Gender, Race & Ethnicity, Socioeconomic Class, White Racial Identity, Religion, Arab/Jewish, International/U.S., Sexual Orientation, Ability Status.
