News and Events



The Research Center for Cultural Diversity and Community Renewal (CDCR) was established in the fall of 1998 at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. CDCR is dedicated to developing and promoting a renewed vision for achieving a harmonious and socially just community through education. CDCR’s two main initiatives are Project Teach and Project Forward. Both of these career ladder programs fund students of Hmong descent who want to become educators. Currently, CDCR is providing funding and training for numerous undergraduate and graduate students at several UW System institutions. Alumni of the program include several educators and administrators working in Wisconsin and the surrounding states.
