Welcome to the application for IDSC 203: Talking About Diversity. For Fall 2020, the class will be held online and will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:45-3:30pm (central standard time). This is a 6 credit S/CR/NC class. To pass the class, students must fully participate, can miss no more than 2 class meetings, and must turn in all written assignments.

IDSC 203 prepares students to facilitate peer-led conversations about diversity through theoretical and experiential study of social identity, power, and inequality. This 6 credit course prepares students to co-facilitate for their peers in the Winter Term Intergroup Dialogue (IDSC 103) class.

The class is taught by Sharon Akimoto, Professor in Psychology, and Amy Sillanpa, Assistant Dean of Students.

Applications are due BY August 4th, 2020 to receive first consideration. If spots remain in the class, applications will be accepted until the class is filled or the term begins.
