Our Mission

The Race, Crime and Justice Center is a multifaceted multidisciplinary entity for exploring critical issues at the intersection of race / ethnicity, crime and justice. Through a visiting scholars program, community partnerships and collaborative efforts within the College and across the University, Center participants conduct funded research aimed at answering several of the “big questions” that plague our understanding of crime and justice in a diverse society.

The findings from these research efforts are disseminated through Center sponsored colloquia and workshops designed to help faculty incorporate this important information within their course content. Undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral student researchers play a vital role in the Center’s functioning. Publication of research findings and reports is ongoing.
