Our Initiatives



IRISE 2.0 has identified racial inequality in education and health as its main focus of research for the 2018-2020 academic years.  Specifically, the research mission of IRISE 2.0 is to support community engaged interdisciplinary research that addresses racial disparity through qualitative or quantitative methodology, creative works, as well as projects that provide policy prescription or analysis.   Given the interrelated nature of education, health, housing, and income, we will consider all projects that illuminate the impact of racial inequality in our region consistent with the vision of DU Impact 2025.
