Mission

The mission of the Walker Institute is to engage in research, teaching and service to promote:

  • Understanding of race and ethnic relations, with a special emphasis on the causes of disparities and the contexts in which conflicts as well as shared purposes and perspectives arise.
  • Appreciation of the diverse peoples and cultures of the United States, with special emphasis on the peoples and cultures of Michigan.
  • More equitable and inclusive communities and institutions, especially in this region of the state and throughout Michigan.
