The Center to Advance Racial Equity (CARE) was created in 2013 to advance racial equity in the region of Portland, Oregon, with PSU providing essential supports for community-initiated research requests, and meeting these needs through the provision of high quality, useful research. CARE was based within the School of Social Work at PSU and became a hub for research related to racial equity.

From 2013-2016, CARE produced research studies, drawing on student and community researchers to conduct research. CARE has transitioned to community ownership.
