The USC Equity Research Institute (ERI), formerly known as the USC Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE) and the USC Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration (CSII), promotes forward-looking narratives that support the integration of diverse immigrant and U.S.-born communities; lifts up the intersection of racial justice and immigrant rights; and strengthens the base for intersectoral collaborations.

Collaborative Research and Field Building at ERI explores what it means to be a healthy, sustainable, and racially-just workplace and to popularize university-based, community-engaged, and collaborative research focused on equity.
