NCORE heads to the Pacific Northwest May 28 - June 1, 2019. In Portland, it’s easy to find limitless recreation, fabulous food, flourishing culture, and engaged citizenry. See for yourself, and come early or stay late to enjoy all that Portland has to offer. You’ll find retailers large and small, international and indie within easy reach of hotels. The nearby Pearl District is home to galleries, boutiques, chic restaurants and the legendary Powell’s City of Books. An award-winning airport, an accessible, efficient light rail system and compact blocks in the central city make getting around town a real pleasure.
In 1988, The Southwest Center for Human Relations Studies launched the first Annual National Conference for Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education (NCORE®) addressing the resurgence of racist incidents in higher education. Since its inception, NCORE has evolved into a vital national resource for higher education institutions, providing an annual multicultural forum that attracts Black/African Americans, American Indians, Asian/Pacific Islanders, Latino/as, and European Americans representing campuses across the United States.
The NCORE® conference series constitutes the leading and most comprehensive national forum on issues of race and ethnicity in American higher education. The conference focuses on the complex task of creating and sustaining comprehensive institutional change designed to improve racial and ethnic relations on campus and to expand opportunities for educational access and success by culturally diverse, traditionally underrepresented populations.
