Ethnic Studies Student Information & Resources

The ethnic studies department is comprised of one of the most diverse, yet cohesive, student populations on campus.  We place a special emphasis on community, and value individual students for the variety of talents and interests they bring. 

We believe cultural understanding and acceptance is a valuable byproduct of a curriculum that focuses on critical inquiry to advance analysis of race, ethnicity, and cultural difference in an increasingly heterogeneous and complex world.

This page is intended to provide resources for both current and future students.  If you are an alumni, please visit the Alumni tab.
