This course is for students who are doing advanced applied work in Intergroup Relations. This includes facilitating intergroup dialogues for a second or third time or being workshop facilitators in supervised IGR or social justice education settings. Students will be facilitating a dialogue section that meets on Wednesdays, 10 AM - 12 PM or 3-5 PM.
