From Awareness to Action: College Students' Skill Development in Intergroup Dialogue
Hopkins, Larissa E.; Domingue, Andrea D.
Equity & Excellence in Education, v48 n3 p392-402 2015
A central goal of intergroup dialogue (IGD) is to strengthen individual and collective capacities to foster social justice commitments by supporting new ways of thinking about oneself, others, and the social structures in which we live. Relatedly, IGD assists individuals with building multicultural competencies and skill sets that support peoples' capacities to take action and work towards social change. The following qualitative study contributes to current research by describing the types of skills undergraduate students report learning as a result of their IGD experience and the challenges they encounter as they develop communication, cognitive, and affective skills.
