American Ethnic Studies Minor

American Ethnic Studies emerged in universities as a response to a community-based demand from civil rights movements to include the perspectives of communities of color historically erased, socially dismissed, and institutionally underrepresented. A minor in American Ethnic Studies teaches university students to think critically about the multifaceted realities and identities of America’s diverse ethnicities; promotes social justice ideals and practices of inclusivity; fosters community-based engaged research and praxis responsive to the needs and realities of underserved constituencies; and foregrounds the needs, concerns, and knowledge of historically underrepresented peoples of color in Kansas.
