Diversity Initiatives in Higher Education: Intergroup Dialogue as Pedagogy across the Curriculum
Clark, Christine
Multicultural Education, v12 n3 p51 Spr 2005
The idea for the Intergroup Dialogue as Pedagogy Across the Curriculum (INTERACT) Pilot Project emerged, quite organically, from the cross-pollination of two major initiatives of the Office of Human Relations Programs (OHRP), the equity compliance and multicultural education arm of the Office of the President at the University of Maryland, College Park. These initiatives are OHRP's Words of Engagement Intergroup Dialogue Program--the core component of its Student Intercultural Learning Center (SILC)--and OHRP's Multicultural Curriculum Change Program--a major offering of its Diversity Training and Consultation Services (DTCS). This article discusses the INTERACT project and it's findings. It concludes by saying that through the continued development of the INTERACT project, it has an equally tremendous potential to impact classroom teaching and learning, intergroup dialogue facilitation and participation, corresponding student engagement in the curriculum, and subsequent student academic success across disciplines/subjects areas and educational levels/contexts on a grander scale.
