The College of Arts & Letters, established a Critical Race Studies Residency Program that will bring an Artist-in-Residence and a Designer-in-Residence to campus to enrich the life of student experiences and the greater community by facilitating practices of inclusion through art and design as part of the Department of Art, Art History, and Design. The Critical Race Studies Residency Program is designed to empower artistic creativity that drives cultural transformation through a shared engagement with creative practice.

The Critical Race Studies Residency program is made possible thanks to a $750,000 gift from Michigan State University Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU), and with the generous support of the Creating Inclusive Excellence Funding Program from the Office for Inclusion & Intercultural Initiatives at MSU.
