Challenging systemic racism and promoting racial equality through scholarship, education, and community empowerment.

Global in scope and comparative and interdisciplinary in critical approach, the Initiative on Race and Resilience promotes multiracial collaboration, qualitative and quantitative methodologies, and inclusive pedagogy.

Who we are

Notre Dame's Initiative on Race and Resilience serves as the site at which a community of scholars, teachers, students, artists, and community organizers gather to develop and advance their respective projects, exchange ideas, and celebrate the expressive cultures of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities.
