Welcome to Stanford's CENTER FOR COMPARATIVE STUDIES IN RACE & ETHNICITY

CCSRE Director, Jennifer DeVere Brody
CCSRE Director, Jennifer DeVere Brody

For the past 25 years, the Center has advanced racial equity through interdisciplinary education, research and community engagement. CCSRE works to end racial inequalities that structure our lived experience from citizenship,  gender/sexuality, health, technology, law, to the arts, policing, economics, and more.  We sponsor public lectures, practitioner fellows, undergraduate majors, a Ph.D. minor, graduate fellows and more than 140 affiliated faculty from all seven schools. We collaborate with academic departments, community centers and institutes as well as community partners. In our era of competing ethnic nationalisms, growing white supremacy,  rapid technological change, mass incarceration, global population shifts due to climate change and economic disparity, our work for racial equity is imperative. We invite you to join us in this urgent work.
