Maximize Your NCORE Experience by Joining or Forming an Identity Group Caucus

NCORE defines a caucus as "a place where participants retreat to a more private setting to process information, agree on strategy, confer and/or simply gain "breathing room" after the often emotionally-difficult interactions that can occur in the common area where all parties are present." Additionally, the caucus groups are asked to provide input to the program development process each year. The following is a partial list of caucus groups that self-organized and met at prior conferences:

  • The Asian American/Pacific Islander Caucus at NCORE (APINCORE)
  • Latinx Caucus
  • Native Delegates of NCORE (NDNCORE)
  • Whites Partnering to Dismantle Racism Caucus
  • Multiracial Caucus
  • Enrollment Management Professionals Caucus

Information to Organize Caucus Meetings

NCORE supports the self-organization of identity groups. We gladly provide meeting space, and will assist in publicizing the times and locations of meetings. Caucus meetings are open to interested participants. To organize your own group, email  and express the following:

• the group’s plans and intentions for the formation of the caucus,
• generally, who the members will be, and
• the purpose of the organization

Please be aware that no group within NCORE can exclude any individual legitimately attending NCORE, who has paid whatever group fees may be levied of members, and who may wish to either attend the group’s meetings and/or become a member of it. Moreover, our own SWCHRS / NCORE Advisory Board members and SWCHRS / NCORE staff will at all times reserve the right to attend any and all caucus functions.
