The Institute for Research on Race & Public Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) promotes and coordinates engaged research on racial and ethnic justice in the U.S. Our mission is to increase society's understanding of the root causes of racial and ethnic inequality and to provide the public, organizers, practitioners, and policymakers with research-based policy solutions. We impact the community when we engage with community organizations to address their needs, when we are in news stories about racial and ethnic justice issues, and when our research is published in scholarly sources. For more information regarding our impact, read our annual reports here.
