About the Center

The Stanford University Center for Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity (CCSRE) was established in 1996 when student activists and faculty researchers united to form the university’s most comprehensive race and ethnic studies program. In the 25 years since its founding, CCSRE has grown into a university-wide research and teaching center with over 150 affiliated faculty from 28 departments and six (6) schools. CCSRE offers undergraduate degrees in Asian American, Chicana/o/x-Latino/a/x, Native American, Jewish and Comparative Race Studies; a Ph.D. program; 200+ courses; and multiple student fellowships. CCSRE also leads major research, publication, training, policy engagement and public education on diverse topics including art, criminal justice, artificial intelligence, race and inequality.
