IGR is a nationally recognized academic, credit-bearing social-justice program that originated at the University of Michigan in 1988 as a means of addressing racial tension. Its primary goal was to support student learning and competencies around inter- and intra-group relations, conflict, and social justice across a range of social identities, including race, gender, sexuality, social class, religion, and nationality. Since then, it has expanded to a number of colleges and universities across the United States, including the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, University of Maryland, Occidental College, and Mount Holyoke College.
In 2008, Skidmore supported the development of a pilot program, adapted from the Michigan model, to meet our Strategic Plan goals focused on intercultural and global understanding to better prepare students to live in an increasingly diverse and global society.
