Upcoming: Intergroup Dialogue Training

Our office is offering a four-day Intergroup Dialogue (IGD) Training Institute during the fall 2017 semester.

The series will train and support our first cohort of San Jose State IGD facilitators. This is a great opportunity for students, staff, faculty and administrators to build capacity for sustained communication, continue to develop their personal and social identity awareness and strengthen capacities to promote social justice.
