Intergroup Dialogue Facilitators (IDFs) serve as upper-class peer mentors to students enrolled the Intergroup Dialogue sections of UNV 100. Intergroup Dialogue Facilitators attend both large and small group meetings, supervision sessions with course instructors, facilitate discussion and activities during small group meetings, offer guidance on class projects and papers, provide feedback on journals, and verify attendance. However, they are NOT teaching assistants and do not grade student performance. Intergroup Dialogue Facilitators will help introduce new students to the university as a place of higher learning emphasizing the importance of the universitys general education program. They will serve as an academic role model and educational coach both inside and outside of the classroom encouraging students to take responsibility for their educational success. Ideally, the Intergroup Dialogue Facilitators are experienced students who have taken the course successfully in the past and/or received training in group facilitation.
