Intergroup dialogue (IGDs) programs on college campuses have a history of success as part of college and university diversity awareness portfolios. These initiatives structure positive interaction between diverse groups of students using dialogues with the objective of creating greater understanding about issues of diversity. There are different intergroup dialogue models, one of which is called The Voices of Discovery program. This model maximizes faculty support of and student participation in the dialogue groups.
The LinD Group can work with your institution to initiate a dialogue program, present the Voices of Discovery Intergroup Dialogue program model, and train staff in intergroup dialogue facilitation.
