Teaching Activities

Information about teaching activities that take place within the Center for Race and Ethnicity.

Team-Taught Courses

The CRE provides support for co-taught courses on issues of race and ethnicity in a wide variety of disciplines and contexts. Center staff (administrators, directors and graduates students) work with instructors in the development of new syllabi, with administrative concerns, by giving guest lectures, and in offering a space for interdisciplinary perspectives to be actively incorporated into their teaching.  These courses are usually targeted at upper-level undergraduate students.  If you have a course that you are interested in developing in collaboration with the CRE, please contact us. Successful courses produced with CRE support include:
