IJourney workshops are peer developed, peer led workshops covering a variety of topics. Facilitated by pool of trained student-facilitators, IJourney workshops explore issues of social identity, exclusion/inclusion, and being an ally. Student-facilitators meet with requestors to adapt, modify, or create a workshop to meet the needs of the specific groups.
