Psych 103F / 203F - Intergroup Communication Facilitation

Presented jointly by Stanford’s Office for Inclusion, Belonging and Intergroup Communication (IBIC) and the Department of Psychology, Psych 103F/203F: Intergroup Communication Facilitation is a class that teaches facilitation skills through experiential learning and reflection. In offering this course, our hope is to empower students to build upon their already existing skills so that they may foster more opportunities for dialogue, connection and community building within and beyond Stanford’s campus.

Students in this course have used what they’ve learned to facilitate conversations with their residences, organizations, sports teams, families, friends, and other communities. Others have incorporated their learning into Teaching Assistantships or work life outside of Stanford. If you are interested in continuing to develop your facilitation skills beyond the scope of this course, you are welcome to seek out additional opportunities with the IBIC Office.
