This is an invitation-only event open to those who applied by the November deadline and were accepted for Winter 2020. Please contact the IDP team at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Through an interactive process known as intergroup dialogue, this offering, hosted by the Intergroup Dialogue Project, provides participants with opportunities to explore how their social identities shape their professional choices and teaching/learning styles, how to build capacity to have meaningful dialogue and effective collaborations across social, cultural and power differences, and how to explore the power of alliances when seeking to create an inclusive environment.
This program offering for Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars has been made possible through funding support from the Graduate School Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement, CIRTL at Cornell, the Graduate School’s ETS/CGS Award for Innovation in Promoting Success in Graduate Education, and the National Science Foundation-funded Cornell CIRTL AGEP Project under Grant No. 1647094.
