Official Reappointed to NCORE National Advisory Committee
Sandra Moore, Associate Provost for Diversity Planning at Eastern Kentucky University, has been reappointed to serve on the National Advisory Committee for the National Conference of Race and Ethnicity (NCORE) in American Higher Education. She will also continue as chair of the Marketing and Outreach Subcommittee of NAC. This is her second year of office for both positions.
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.
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.
The function of the NCORE National Advisory Committee is to assist in an advisory capacity in setting a vision for the conference or implementing that vision by making recommendations with respect to the conference program, keynote speakers, and special events.
The Marketing and Outreach subcommittee makes recommendations on appropriate ways to market the conference by increasing the visibility of the conference with the public at large, as well as with potential participants on the campuses of the organization’s member colleges and universities for the purpose of increasing participation in the NCORE conference.
