Indiana University Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is excited to offer a program to promote awareness of multicultural topics and expand the opportunity for cross-cultural and inter-group dialogue on campus. Through participation in this FREE 6 week workshop, students will increase their understanding of themselves, the groups they belong to and of others who belong to group different from their own. The group is facilitated by two CAPS staff --  a psychologist and a predoctoral psychology intern. Each week, participants will spend 1.5 hours engaging in activities and discussion.

The mission of the Voices of Discovery program is to organize “Intergroup dialogues” for the purpose of:

  • Fostering meaningful, structured interaction between students from diverse backgrounds.
  • Increasing students’ understanding and awareness of themselves, the groups they belong to and of other student show belong to diverse groups.
  • Increasing students’ understanding about intergroup issues.

Group topics include:

  • Identity exploration
  • Intersecting identities
  • Oppression
  • Privilege
  • Stereotypes and biases
  • Being an ally
  • Empowerment

This new group will meet Mondays between 1:00-2:00pm, February 9th - March 23; at the IMU in the Health and Wellness Center.
