    The Institute for the Study and Promotion of Race and Culture (ISPRC) invites proposals that reflect some aspect of participant experiences in treating, teaching, studying, or intervening to understand how racial and ethnic discrimination influence the lives of individuals and communities. Presentations should focus on developments in research, professional practice, education, community activities and activism and/or social justice initiatives as they pertain to racial and ethnic discrimination at some point in the lifespan. Topics may include, but are not limited to applications of theory, community and school initiatives, activism, anti-racism training as well as current research and practice related to:

    1.  Understanding the relationships between racial and ethnic discrimination or violence and various mental and physical health and psychosocial outcomes

    2.  Improving the quality of life for children, adolescents, families, and elders in schools and communities

    3.  Addressing the effects of racial and ethnic discrimination through community and grassroots initiatives

    4.  Implementing and evaluating innovative and culturally competent interventions in traditional and nontraditional environments.

    Strongest consideration will be given to proposals that focus directly on the 2014 Diversity Challenge theme, Racial or Ethnic Discrimination across the Lifespan.

    The call for proposals is due by April 19.

    Please submit your proposal using the online proposal submission form.
