The Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society (CRRES) at Indiana University in Bloomington is an interdisciplinary, academic center. Our mission is to promote research on race and ethnicity, bring together scholars across interdisciplinary units for dialogue and collaboration, and train the next generation of scholars here on the IUB campus. We invite you to browse our website, attend our speaker series, and engage our faculty and students as they pursue their research agendas.

Stop AAPI Hate Resources
Anti-Asian violence has a long history in the U.S., yet is often obscured by ideas like the model minority myth. Drawing on both a rich community of scholars here at Indiana University and beyond, CRRES has created a resource page addressing anti-Asian racism. On the page, you'll find immediate ways to take action, from reporting bias incidents to on-going petitions; links to IU units that serve Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students; and selected readings to help make sense of the recent violence against Asians and Asian Americans.
