How to Get Involved
Intergroup dialogue often involves members of groups with a history of conflict or limited opportunities to engage in deep and meaningful discussion of controversial, challenging, or divisive issues.
Look for the "Colgate Conversations" name, in the form of weekly brownbag discussions, peer-driven and student leadership workshops, and staff/faculty-led Orientation presentations. They all use an IGD approach to encourage individuals to explore the complexities of social identities (religion, race/ethnicity, gender, class, etc) to improve communication and relationships between individuals from different social backgrounds. Through experiential learning opportunities, Colgate Conversations fosters an understanding of how individual perspectives are rooted in systems of power and privilege and provides an opportunity for community members to work together across difference toward purposeful social change.
