Welcome to the Center for Race, Ethnic, and Indigenous Studies at Marquette (REIS)! 

The Center for REIS at Marquette University is the first of its kind on our campus and is unique because it works on three discrete but overlapping initiatives: 

1. Curricular: Our objectives are to bring together course offerings in the areas of REIS across the university under one umbrella. This includes courses that are centered on Africana Studies, Arab and Muslim Studies, Latinx Studies, Native American and Indigenous Studies, and the broader theoretical work being done on campus on critical race, ethnic, and indigenous studies across disciplines and colleges. 

2. Communities: We aim to strengthen the formation of a supportive and inclusive community on Marquette's campus, particularly for under-represented groups of faculty, staff, and students. We want to facilitate community partnership with the greater Milwaukee community and to create opportunity for both informal and formal socialization to strengthen the intellectual, professional, and interpersonal bonds on our campus.  We want to create a thriving and welcoming community for all those who visit our campus. 

3. Collaborative Research: We are committed to supporting collaborative research endeavors across colleges in the name of promoting cutting-edge research at the intersection of race, ethnic, and indigenous studies that transcends disciplinary boundaries and brings undergraduate and graduate students, community members, and faculty and staff together for meaningful dialogue and exchange as well as mutual support.
