Department of Ethnic Studies 


About Us

We strive to empower students to transform society and participate in real-world problem-solving through a vibrant engagement with the intersectional histories and contributions of Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC). We are committed to the comparative, critical, and transnational study of race, ethnicity, and Indigeneity, especially as those formations intersect with others including gender, sexuality, class, religion, nation, and dis/ability.
