Study Circles:

Author
  • Joyce Samuels (Iowa State University)

Abstract

The panel will share information and experiences about study circles. These small multiracial groups openly discuss hard questions about race, race perceptions, and experiences. Study circles are used in hundreds of cities, including Des Moines, Waterloo, and Sioux City, as a starting point for community problem-solving. The groups use materials prepared by the Study Circle Resource Center and are led by a trained facilitator. Study circles will soon be started in Ames by the Ames Human Relations Commission. There will be an opportunity to sign up to join local study circles; students are encouraged to participate.
