Welcome to the Center for Ethnic Studies Research

The Center for Ethnic Studies Research (CESR) offers students and faculty spaces for community-building through collaborative research and professional development opportunities exploring race and ethnicity that include internships, fellowships, certificates, workshops, symposia, partnerships, and an array of other activities.

CESR advances innovative multidisciplinary and collaborative research addressing core communities central to Ethnic Studies—Latinx, Asian American, Native American, African American/U.S. African diasporas—from local, regional, comparative, and transnational perspectives. Our investigative projects and programs aim to expand educational excellence, nurture community engagement, and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. As an active catalyst towards effective change, CESR is where access and opportunity connect with faculty and students who are looking to amplify research and professional development in Ethnic Studies.
