Centers & Research

  • Matrix Center for the Advancement of Social Equity and Inclusion

    Our mission is to examine and challenge systems of oppression and privilege in society, and implement effective solutions through comprehensive educational programming, literature, institutes, and workshops locally, nationally, and beyond.

  • White Privilege Conference

    The WPC provides a challenging, collaborative and comprehensive experience.  We strive to empower and equip individuals to work for equity and justice through self and social transformations.

  • Knapsack Institute

    As our nation becomes increasingly diverse, it is imperative to have the understanding and resources to effectively navigate discussions about diversity and inequality in the classroom and workplace. The Knapsack Institute is designed for individuals at the beginning to intermediate stages of this journey, as well as those seeking to refresh their approach and embrace intersectional strategies. The Institute is designed for all educators (K-12; higher education; workshop facilitators, etc.).

    Race, class, gender and sexuality are highly personal and emotionally-laden subjects. They may evoke a range of responses, from hostility and anger to guilt and depression. The Institute will prepare you to preempt and manage such responses and be better prepared. Our goal is to provide you with the tools, knowledge and support to create an inclusive and empowering educational setting and experience.
