IDS 253 Voices of Discovery: Intergroup Dialogue 
IDS 253, a 3 credit course, introduces the intergroup dialogue model of peer learning and involves semi-structured face-to-face meetings across social identity groups, discussion of relevant reading material, and exploration of group experiences in social and institutional contexts. New knowledge, awareness, mindsets, and active listening skills acquired through the practice of intergroup dialogue serve to help students communicate better at school, in the classroom, and on the job.
