Research & Scholarship

The National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) promotes cross-disciplinary research and scholarship development by engaging in its direct production, supporting the work of others, and disseminating promising findings from affiliated scholars, faculty and graduate students.

Our framework for diversity research and scholarship is not limited to particular disciplines, topics, populations, or methodologies. We believe that diversity research and scholarship is critical to engage and equip members of society with critical ways to think about commonalities and difference that can be applied in a variety of ways to improve daily interpersonal and intergroup interactions, institutional and organizational practices, and policies. From our perspective then, diversity scholars share a common goal for their research and scholarship: advancing equity and inclusion throughout our society.

We invite you to browse and learn from the over 400 members in our Diversity Scholars Network and support the advancement of early-career and senior diversity scholars through our fellowships and distinguished professorship.
