The William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation

University of Mississippi, University, MS


The William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation serves the University of Mississippi and the larger academic community by fostering reconciliation and civic renewal wherever people suffer as a result of racial discrimination or alienation, and by promoting scholarly research, study and teaching on race and the impact of race and racism.

It seeks to be:

  • A trusted and effective national resource and facilitator for communities, businesses and trade associations, not-for-profit and non-government organizations and government entities seeking to understand and reconcilepast and present inequities and achieve fuller cooperation among the races; and
  • A world class multi-disciplinary center for scholarly research, study and teaching on race and the impact of race and racism across traditional academic areas.

The Winter Institute engages in interracial dialogues, community improvement projects and mentoring/tutoring. It helps communities with grant writing, communications and community building strategies, for which it charges no fees. It trains community leaders to collect oral histories on racial issues in order to lift up issues and build political will. It offers retreats to share tools on having open and honest dialogue in a safe space.
