Louise Here's the info: Check out this course for spring semester: Intergroup Dialogue EDHI 230: Training in Intergroup Dialogue (12399) Spring Semester: Wednesdays, 3:00-5:50pm in the Allen House This course satisfies the Diversity 2 requirement (Human and Societal Diversity) for most students The Intergroup Dialogue course explores the intersection of identities including race, ethnicity, gender, religion, social class, and sexual orientation. The class will also explore issues such as racism, sexism, and classism through films, readings, in-class exercises, guest presenters, facilitated dialogue, and written reflections. The course will allow students to learn about various social identities as well as build knowledge to engage in dialogue with others regarding identity. Course topics and readings will also cover the nature of dialogue, the intergroup dialogue model, basic facilitation skills, oppression and privilege, and taking action toward developing a socially just community. Please note that while EDHI 203A does fulfill the University-wide Diversity 2 (D2) requirement, some Schools and Colleges have additional requirements regarding D2 courses. For students in the College of Arts and Sciences, EDHI 230A may be used as an elective, but it does not satisfy the CAS-specific D2 Non-European Cultures requirement. Please check with your advisor or the Dean’s office in your School or College regarding whether EDHI 230A will satisfy specific requirements. ************************************************* Deanna Garrett-Ostermiller Assistant Director Center for Student Ethics and Standards The University of Vermont 106 Nicholson House, 41 South Prospect St. Burlington, VT 05405 Telephone: 802-656-4360 Fax: 802-656-8191 Website: www.uvm.edu/cses This email and any files transmitted may contain confidential information as protected by the Family Educational Right to Privacy Act (FERPA), 20 USC ?1232g and/or Electronic Communications Privacy Act, 18 U.S.C. ?? 2510-2521.
