The Center hosts leading race/ethnicity scholars in political science who share their innovative research with the ASU community. Among the presentations to this point has been research by eminent scholars on: the creation, development, and activities of the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF); the political socialization processes of Latinx immigrants, especially those in spousal relations; and comparing, contrasting and explaining the (different) reception and civic engagement of Mexican immigrant populations in Philadelphia and Atlanta.

The Center hosted a meeting of the Politics of Race, Immigration, and Ethnicity Consortium (PRIEC) in January 2019, an all-day series of presentations by scholars of race/ethnicity in American politics.

In February 2019, we hosted a Research Coordination Network (RCN) meeting for young scholars (Assistant professors) from under-represented minority groups, who study racial/ethnic politics. The purpose of the Network is to draw young scholars working on similar research questions into a community to generate new ideas and approaches to the subject matter, foster collaborations, and provide mentoring and support across institutional divides, and do so over an extended period.
