What is Intergroup Dialogue?

Intergroup Dialogue is a seven-week program that provides a unique learning opportunity for AU students to engage on a range of identity topics including but not limited to: race, ethnicity, gender, class, sexuality, and faith. Housed in the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, these dialogues gather people from multiple backgrounds and identities for sustained, ongoing dialogue for two hours each week.
