The Equity Institute for Race-Conscious Pedagogy (RCP) is made up of a diverse team of educators that work to advance scholarship on inclusive learning through publishing, curriculum design, and pedagogical professional development. RCP was founded in 2020 to help educators at all levels design curriculum with an inclusive lens. Our curriculum-design workshops are research-oriented and we take pride in engaging with all ideological voices.


We conduct institutional assessments, audits, and climate studies.


We also maintain a research agenda to enhance race-conscious pedagogies through book publications and student research internships.
