In Spring 2013, Intergroup Dialogue, a three-credit course, is being offered to all undergraduate students (LDR 3240).
Intergroup Dialogue Among Diverse Populations
LDR 3240 – Wednesday 1:40-4:20 – CRN 12333
Instructor: Dr. John Frank
What is Intergroup Dialogue?
Intergroup Dialogue is a process through which students of different social identities learn to hear and respect each others’ positions, first, by coming to understand how the various labels people assign to one another affect their own and others’ lives, and then, by discussing the commonalities, differences and conflicts between groups.
How does it work?
The three-credit course, Intergroup Dialogue Among Diverse Populations, is designed to provide foundational skills and knowledge needed to participate in and lead multicultural group interactions. The topics of this course include social identity development; prejudice and stereotyping and their effects on groups; difference and dominance and the nature of social oppression; and basic group facilitation skills and their applications in multicultural settings. Topical areas are explored through readings, videos, facilitated in-class dialogues, activities, simulations, role-plays, and reflective journal and writing assignments.
Who can take the class?
Intergroup Dialogue courses are open to all undergraduate students for elective credit. The courses also satisfy selected requirements for the Leadership Certificate and Leadership Minor.
What is expected from students in Intergroup Dialogue?
Students are required to attend and actively participate in every class, complete assigned readings, write weekly journals and a final paper, and lead an in-class facilitation project.
What if I don’t have room in my course schedule?
In addition to academic courses, Intergroup Dialogue also offers co-curricular opportunities outside of class each semester.
