In support of the University’s diversity and inclusion efforts, Tom Greene and Fr. John Donato, C.S.C., have sponsored participation of 20 faculty and staff members at this year’s National Conference on Race and Ethnicity (NCORE), 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 2019 is being held in Portland from May 28 to June 1. UP faculty and staff members who attend NCORE will meet after the conference to discuss ways to incorporate ideas from the conference to our campus.
