Mission and Services

From 2012 to 2017, the Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education brought together University of Pennsylvania scholars who conducted research on race, racism, racial climates, and important topics pertaining to equity in education. Center staff and affiliates collaborated on funded research projects, environmental assessment activities, and the production of timely research reports. As of summer 2017, former executive director Dr. Shaun Harper can now be reached at his new academic home, the USC Race and Equity Center.

With Dr. Harper’s departure, Penn’s Graduate School of Education is bringing together students, staff and faculty to re-imagine a new future for this important effort.
