Stanford University
Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE)

Established in November 1996, the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE) at Stanford University provides many opportunities for teaching and research on topics of race and ethnicity from both domestic and international comparative perspectives. Drawing on the intellectual interests of over one hundred Affiliated Faculty representing fifteen departments and programs and five different schools at the University, CCSRE has infused ethnic studies with a new vitality through its research and teaching divisions.

Research Institute: The research division sponsors fellowship programs, faculty and graduate student seminar series, research networks, and a variety of other events, conferences and research activities.
