Texas Christian University in Forth Worth is launching a new academic program for the study of diverse cultures. The Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies program will explore issues of race and ethnicity as active social, political, historical, and cultural processes.
According to the university, institutions of higher education must provide opportunities to expose students to issues of diversity and provide opportunities to change perceptions so that graduates can succeed in a global society.
Max Krochmal, an assistant professor of history at Texas Christian University, states that the Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies program “will allow faculty, staff, and students to develop, debate, and discuss significant questions about race and ethnicity through a multitude of disciplinary lenses. CRES complements TCU’s ongoing efforts to bridge racial and ethnic divides and foster intercultural competency, helping us create a more equitable campus environment and global community.”
