The Center for Critical Race Studies (CCRS) at the University of Houston-Downtown creates an opportunity to build knowledge by bringing together the multiple identities and cultures that form our student body. Housed in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, UHD’s CCRS rounds out each student’s educational experience and prepares each to become a vital participant in Houston’s social and economic future and the global community at large.
