Racial Equity and Diversity Logo

We aspire to conduct research with practical implications for ameliorating racial inequities in real-world domains including higher education, the criminal justice system, and popular media coverage. We are committed to conducting theoretically grounded and methodologically rigorous scientific investigation in the promotion of anti-racist objectives.
