Center on Race and Social Problems



The Center educates, trains, and mentors scholars from the undergraduate to the postdoctoral level.  A position on a research project allows individuals to gain not only valuable skills and experience, but also funding for their education.  Students employed as assistants on Center-sponsored research projects have come from the School of Social Work, the School of Education, the School of Arts and Sciences, the Graduate School of Public Health, the School of Law, the College of Business Administration, and the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs.  The Center also gives annual awards for the best student paper submissions on race, and offers graduate courses on race, including a study abroad course in Cuba.
