Academic Diversity

Because programs at IGSM are designed for university/graduate level students there is a purposeful attempt to provide an intellectual forum that offers a significant diversity of resources. You should expect assignments that are intellectually and personally challenging. It is essential that IGSM expose you to a wide spectrum of ideas. You are not expected to agree with all the ideas presented as part of your studies. We expect you to evaluate the materials and presentations and make your own judgments as to the validity of the information presented. We recognize the many different traditions that are represented among our students, mentors, and instructors. Therefore IGSM provides an intellectually challenging environment where diversity is viewed as a positive and fundamental value.
