DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY > Centers
Founded in 1990, the Center for History and Policy has played an important role in stimulating research opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students interested in the intersection of history and policy. In addition, the Center sponsors events that bring historical analysis to bear on critical policy issues.
Established in 1995, CAUSE (The Center for Africanamerican Urban Studies and the Economy) aims to link the historian's interest in race, work, and economic change over time with contemporary analyses of the urban labor force, employment policies, and community development. The Center seeks to accomplish its objectives by developing programs of graduate and postdoctoral training, scholarly research, data collection, publications, and education.
