Center On Race and Inequality

The mission of CRI is to promote research and teaching to the community of faculty, staff, and students at the University of Louisville as well as community members and officials who construct and pass public policy on critical issues impacting black populations. Through singular and collaborative efforts, CRI exists to cultivate new perspectives and public policy initiatives which seek correctives to the issues chosen for exploration. The goals of CRI reflect those promoted by the University of Louisville and the College of Arts and Sciences of enhancing research and scholarly activities with the aim of achieving national prominence, promoting intercultural understanding, and cultivating real-world change in ever-evolving communities.
