About ISCORE and NCORE
The Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity (ISCORE) is a comprehensive forum on issues of race and ethnicity at Iowa State University and beyond. The local conference* is designed to model the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education (NCORE).
NCORE is the leading and most comprehensive national forum on issues of race and ethnicity in higher education, bringing together leading experts in the field. The conference assists institutions of higher education in creating inclusive environments, improving campus racial and ethnic relations, and expanding opportunities for access to education for traditionally underrepresented populations.
The NCORE-ISCORE Project consists of a delegation of Iowa State University students, faculty, and staff who attend the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education annually. Conference participants will disseminate information gathered from NCORE at ISCORE, the Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity.
The Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity(ISCORE) seeks to bring the more salient ideas and concepts of the national conference to Iowa State University, add local perspectives, and
- Develop and enhance ISU student, faculty, and staff awareness of racial and ethnic issues in higher education around the country.
- Continue to promote addressing multiculturalism in the classroom and in American higher education.
- Make information, regarding issues of race and ethnicity, accessible to the entire university community and support the university’s ongoing efforts.
