Our Mission

To advance racial equity through interdisciplinary education, innovative research, and community engagement.

We face challenges ranging from increasing economic inequality to an overdue racial reckoning and what appears to be irreversible climate change. Understanding how race and ethnicity stem from and exacerbate these problems remains key to our attempts to solve them.
