The CRE2 Innovation Space houses and incubates cutting-edge or experimental research and methodologies; helps faculty transform research ideas into concrete possibilities; and assists colleagues in envisioning the future architecture of opportunity for race/ethnicity research and collaboration.

Labs/Start Ups/Ateliers (LSAs) compose one important dimension of the Innovation Space. With up to $5,000 available in startup funds, LSAs are highly flexible, Affiliate-led and -defined spaces in which Affiliates can envision myriad collaborations, engagements, and experimentation. The Innovation Space is a living space that CRE2  will continue to grow and develop with input from and in partnership with our Affiliates.
