• National Conference on Race and Ethnicity


    NCORE logoSince May 1999, Hamline University has been sending a team of staff, students, faculty and administrators to the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity (NCORE) in American Education.  NCORE is a five day gathering of people whose work and passion addresses race and racism on college campuses, in such areas as classrooms, organizations and co-curricular activities, administrative practice and campus policy, campus life, and social justice education and training. 

    Learn more about the current NCORE Team
     
    NCORE’s purpose is to support the development of Hamline-based diversity leadership and Hamline’s teams, in turn, provide on-campus programs tailored to the particular learning needs of our university community.  From its inception, this program has prioritized education and advocacy on race and ethnicity. However, sponsored events often address religious, national origin, gender, sexuality, social class, and ability differences as they intersect with racial and ethnic identities.
     
    Hamline team members have returned to campus with new energy, great ideas for programs, connections with nationally known speakers, and a commitment to sharing their learning with the campus community.  Among recent Hamline events inspired by NCORE are the lunchtime conversations “This is My Story,” the J-term Race Video Discussion Series, the Allies Against White Privilege student group, the HU-CORE retreat for students, “Mini-Conference on Major Intersections, NCORE Film Series on Race and Comedy, Oracle Race Files article series and the upcoming Mini-Conference on Multicultural Competencies.  This is a great honor and opportunity to continue one’s education and work on racial justice and to serve the Hamline community by taking on a leadership opportunity related to racial justice next year. 

    This year the NCORE team will consist of eight Hamline community members - up to six students (five undergraduate students and one law/grad student), one faculty member, and one staff member who has not attended NCORE before.
