Are you interested in learning more about social identities and intersectionality? Do you want to develop the skills needed to navigate differences and become a better advocate for social change? Iowa State University’s “Dialogues on Diversity” course can provide the necessary tools to do just that! The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Engagement is offering a half-semester course exclusively for sorority and fraternity members to explore self-awareness and identify individual and collective actions for interrupting injustices and promoting a more inclusive community for all.

During this course, students will engage in dialogue, active listening, and reflection to learn about self and others. At the end of the course, students should be able to suspend their judgements and identify assumptions they hold, while also gaining an understanding about the power of difference in our personal lives and the world today. Whether you are already knowledgeable about social identities or not, this opportunity serves as a great way to learn, grow, and go out into the community to make change!

Sorority and Fraternity Engagement staff members will be facilitating a section of the Dialogues on Diversity course (H SCI 150) in Spring 2020. This course meets the U.S. Diversity Requirement and serves as a way to explore topics on social justice, diversity and inclusion in a context that is unique to Iowa State.
