The Institute for the Study and Promotion of Race and Culture (ISPRC) is directed by Janet E. Helms, Ph.D.  In addition, collaborators with interests in studying or policy making with a racial or cultural focus are invited to serve as Institute collaborators.  The Institute's multi-site research and training perspective and applied emphasis will make it possible to address the educational and psychological issues of a variety of populations.


Diversity Challenge 2018

Thank you to those who attended our 18th annual Diversity Challenge: Making Race and Culture Work in the STEM Era: Bringing All People to the Forefront.  The participation of so many helped to make Diversity Challenge an exceptional forum to come together and share ideas and research.  It is wonderful to see so many familiar faces, as well as to welcome new friends.  We look forward to next year's Diversity Challenge when our theme will be: 

Race, Culture & WHMP: Survival, Resistance, and Healing in the Current Social Climate.

We are pleased to share the Diversity Challenge Abstracts from our many wonderful presentations at DC 2018.
