Race & Ethnic Studies
In the REST department, we study the complex and often challenging issues of race, ethnicity and racism from an interdisciplinary perspective. Faculty and students work closely to explore: How have race and racism shaped America from its foundation to today? How have social justice movements transformed the meaning of American democracy? How does race matter today in the age of Obama? Race and ethnic studies prepares our students to thrive in an increasingly diverse and global American society.
We do more than study race and ethnicity in the classroom. Students and faculty engage in community action and work for social justice in Southern California’s diverse communities. Students build skills as teachers, social workers, scholars and citizens as they work in our community partnerships and internships.
The Sustainable University of Redlands Farm (SURF) is a natural farm in its beginning stages, but already grows and sells fresh vegetables to Bon Appetit, the food management company on campus.
