To provide leadership opportunities for students to learn about race and ethnicity through courses, related projects, and independent scholarship.
The future lies with young people, and student leadership is a priority of the Institute.
Research projects, service programs, conferences, and special events organized by the Institute will give UALR and Clinton School students remarkable leadership and learning opportunities.
Oral history projects, archival work, and identification of civil rights markers in Arkansas are examples of opportunities in just one discipline, history, that have been noted by the Chancellor‚Äôs Committee on Race and Ethnicity. Students also will bring valuable ideas and projects of their own.
