The Race & Pedagogy Institute (RPI) is a collaboration of the University of Puget Sound and the South Sound community or, as our Indigenous partners say, the Salish Sea community. The work of the Institute in collaboration with our community partners, integrates academic assets of the campus into reciprocal partnerships with the local community knowledge and experience to educate students and teachers at all levels to:

  • Cultivate terms and practices for societal transformation
  • Think critically about race
  • Act to eliminate racism.
