Mission

The mission of the Center for the Study of Diversity (CSD) is to promote academic research and scholarship that facilitate dialogues about and understanding of the social and academic impact of diversity. The Center brings a broadly interdisciplinary focus to its activities, projects, programs, and publications on research and analysis, training, public scholarship, community projects, and information dissemination. The goals of these activities are to:

1.) generate and transmit scholarship about specific diversity-related issues both at UD and beyond;
2.) fund faculty and graduate student research and projects related to diversity;
3.) bring outstanding researchers and scholars of diversity to campus to share their expertise;
4.) communicate the results of the Center’s research and scholarship;
5.) apply scholarship of Center faculty to community issues; and
6.) assist the Vice Provost for Diversity in identifying diversity objectives and information needs for the University of Delaware.
