CRGE: At A Glance
The Consortium on Race, Gender and Ethnicity (CRGE) is a university-wide, interdisciplinary research organization and pedagogic unit that collaborates with departments and colleges across the University of Maryland campus to promote faculty and graduate student development. It is dedicated to the promotion of intersectional scholarship examining the lived experiences of historically underrepresented minorities (URM) and dimensions of inequality; mentoring of intersectional and URM groups in the pipeline from undergraduate degrees through early career faculty; and fostering collaboration. Our work seeks to identify effective and responsive practices to increase retention and promotion of URM faculty.
Why are we important to the UMD campus?
- Building human capital is at the core of our mission and programmatic activities
- Interdisciplinarity and collaboration are the driving forces of our research-building efforts
- Qualitative and mixed methodologies form a central core of our expertise
- Combining efforts with other units enhances the academic pipeline of URM graduate students and faculty
