The National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) workshops and principles are being used on hundreds of campuses, K-12 schools, corporations, law enforcement programs, communities, domestic and international political organizations, and peace negotiations. At the University of Iowa, our team offers courses, free of charge, to the campus and community.

The Building Effective Relationships Across Group Lines session is a four-hour workshop that encourages participants to explore how our identities shape our experiences and our interactions with others. Participants will also examine the dynamics that get in the way of effective relationship-building across difference.
