Cultural Center Directors to Present at NCORE 2017

Angela Rola, Director of the Asian American Cultural Center, and Fany Hannon, Director of the Puerto Rican/Latin American Cultural Center will be presenting The FLAN Effect: Developing Personal and Organizational Cultural Competencies for Student Organizations, at the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education (NCORE), in June 2017.


Since its inception, NCORE has evolved into a vital national resource for higher education institutions, providing an annual multicultural forum that attracts Black/African Americans, American Indians, Asian/Pacific Islanders, Latino/as, and European Americans representing higher education institutions across the United States.

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 (NCORE, 2017).
