Welcome to the UCSB Blum Center on Poverty, Inequality, and Democracy

The UCSB Blum Center aims to foster interdisciplinary, socially engaged research and learning about poverty and inequality, and to contribute to collective action that advances intersectional economic and environmental justice regionally, in the United States, and abroad. Established with funding from UC Regent Richard C. Blum and the UC Office of the President, it is part of a ten-campus network across the UC system.

 

Check back regularly to find out where and when the next Pop up Discussion will take place.

The Blum Center is pleased to announce our inaugural cohort of 2022-23 Central Coast Regional Equity Research Award recipients from UCSB Faculty. Please follow this link for an overview of their research projects supported by this funding.
