The Creation of Stanford’s Program in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity

The authors examine the creation of Stanford’s Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CSRE) program in 1996. They present a brief discussion of the history of ethnic studies and other programs aimed at serving underrepresented minorities at Stanford. Finally, they consider the various effects of student demand and protest, ethnic student organizations, interested faculty and administrative actors, and organizational decision-making processes on the shaping and emergence of CSRE.
