Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Ethnic Studies is to provide an academically rigorous program that substantively contributes to the University’s public commitment to provide a multicultural learning experience. Our comparative and interdisciplinary program covers five core areas: Black Studies; American Indian Studies; Asian American Studies; Chicanx and Latinx Studies; and Gender/Sexualities in Communities of Color. In our courses, we teach students to analyze social relations of race, class, gender, and sexuality; develop nuanced understandings of social justice; and act as socially responsible global citizens.
