Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the NCORE team at the Southwest Center for Human Relations Studies at the University of Oklahoma Outreach has decided to reschedule the 2020 NCORE Conference from May 26-30 to June 23-26, and to offer it online. While we cannot provide the face-to-face experience at the scale of the conference planned for New York City, we are working diligently to provide a high quality virtual experience that will be memorable. The conference is entitled: Connection 2020: An NCORE Experience. We are planning virtual keynote sessions and breakouts as well as a virtual exhibit area for interested vendors and sponsors. Registration is open now. Please join us for Connection 2020: An NCORE Experience  June 23-26, 2020. Let’s keep our NCORE family connected.

What is NCORE

Formed in 1961, the Southwest Center is devoted to the study, understanding, and resolution of human conflict and to promoting understanding and cooperation among people of different racial, ethnic, religious, and economic backgrounds. One of the major programs of the Southwest Center is the Annual National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education (NCORE), which serves as the leading national forum on issues of race and ethnicity in American higher education.

WHAT IS NCORE

NCORE HISTORY

NCORE® is designed to provide a significant forum for discussion, critical dialogue, and exchange of information as institutions search for effective strategies to enhance access, social development, education, positive communication, and cross-cultural understanding in culturally-diverse settings.

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.

JCSCORE

The Journal Committed to Social Change on Race and Ethnicity (JCSCORE) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal published by the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity (NCORE). JCSCORE is committed to promoting an exchange of ideas that can transform lives, enhance learning, and improve human relations in higher education.
