Diversity Research Action Consortium
The Diversity Research and Action Consortium (DRAC) was established in 2005 to integrate research, consulting, and coordinate diversity services nationally, internationally, and in Northern Virginia. DRAC will provide research, training, consultation, and program evaluation in our increasingly complex and culturally and ethnically diverse world on national, international, and regional levels, helping to provide a more effective and efficient understanding, practices, and infrastructure. To create an interdisciplinary perspective encompassing broad viewpoints, the DRAC will incorporate psychological, sociological, economic, public health, anthropological, public policy, legal, and educational academic disciplines. Along with practitioners and community leaders, these leaders aim to facilitate comprehensive analysis of, and related action to tackle the multifaceted issues related to ethnic and cultural diversity in the Northern Virginia region, nationally, and internationally.
