The Center for the Study of Race and Race Relations (CSRRR) is an academic research and resource center. The Center’s mission will be met through the work of various groups engaged in a wide range of activities. This work includes:

  • Producing, supporting, and highlighting race-related scholarship within and beyond the UF community
  • Gathering, analyzing, and sharing historical and contemporary knowledge about race and race relations
  • Developing and supporting, through teaching, research, writing, and workshops, race-related curricula for collegiate and professional schools
  • Fostering non-stigmatizing ways of discussing issues of race and ethnicity, including African Americans, Latino/as, American Indians, Asian Americans, and Whites


Please join us in our efforts to identify and address the many difficult but important race-related issues. We look forward to working with you. We welcome your questions and comments at csrrr@law.ufl.edu.
