The Civil Rights Project is to help renew the civil rights movement by bridging the worlds of ideas and action, to be a preeminent source of intellectual capital within that movement and to deepen the understanding of the issues that must be resolved to achieve racial and ethnic equity as society moves through the great transformation of the 21st century. It believes that either the country will learn to deal effectively with the richness of its diversity, or it will lose pace in a globalizing world and decline and divide. It further believes that focused research and the best ideas of scholars and leaders from all parts of the country can make a decisive contribution to a renewal of the promise of the civil rights movement. The Project convenes national conferences and roundtables, commissions new research and policy studies and produces major reports/books on topics such as student diversity, desegregation, school discipline, special education, dropouts and college access. Since moving to UCLA, it has added new initiatives related to immigration, language policy and a special local focus on studies of the Southern California metropolitan megaplex.
