Who We Are

Brown University's Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America (CSREA) is a leading voice on complex and important social issues and is at the fore of assembling scholars and practitioners to confront some of the most vexing matters facing the nation.

What We Do

Through various programs and initiatives, CSREA fosters creative approaches to entrenched problems such as: social inequality, police profiling, implicit bias, ethnic stereotyping and immigration policies through rigorous and accessible research, scholarship, education, performance, and art.

Why It Matters

In our increasingly diverse society, it is all the more important that we engage in a meaningful exchange on these critical and complex issues so that we can better navigate the terrain of a rapidly changing world as we create more peaceful, just and prosperous communities.
