Race & Pedagogy Institute

We envision a society where the systemic causes of racism have been uprooted and in which we are energized to reimagine a world oriented toward the shared experience of liberation.

The Race & Pedagogy Institute (RPI) is a collaboration of the University of Puget Sound and the South Sound community—or, as our Native American partners say, the Salish Sea community—that integrates academic assets of the campus into reciprocal partnerships with local community knowledge and experience to educate students and teachers at all levels to think critically about race, to cultivate terms and practices for societal transformation, and to act to eliminate racism.

Our mission is to educate students and teachers at all levels to think critically about race, to cultivate terms and practices for societal transformation, and to act to eliminate racism.
