DIVERSITY DIALOGUES (UGS 299) provides opportunities for experiential and intellectual engagement with issues of difference, diversity, social justice, and alliance building. The course will create a setting in which students engage in open and constructive dialogue, with learning and exploration concerning issues of intergroup relations, conflict, and community. Course objectives include providing students the opportunity to:
- Develop a language and capacity for dialogue—deep listening, suspending judgments, identifying assumptions, reflecting, and inquiring—in a diverse society
- Reflect upon and learn about self and others as members of a social group(s) in the context of systems of inequalities
- Explore the similarities and differences in experiences within and across social group memberships
- Gain knowledge and understand the impact of racism, sexism, classism, xenophobia and other -isms on intergroup relations in the United States
- Develop skills to work with differences, disagreements, and conflicts as opportunities for deeper understanding
- Identify and plan individual and collective actions that contribute toward more inclusive and just communities
