Students Attend NCORE 2011

Thanks to funding from the College of the Pacific Deans Office and the Ethnic Studies Program, students Tara Ignont and Kerry Robinson were able to attend the National Conference of Race and Ethnicity (NCORE) in San Francisco for the second year in a row. NCORE is "the leading and most comprehensive national forum on issues of race and ethnicity in American higher education." The conference includes approximately 200 different educational opportunities offered through workshops, feature presentations, networking sessions and keynotes.

Since attending NCORE 2010:

  • Tara and Kerry co-presented a poster session at Pacific's Gender, Race and Space Conference.
  • Tara participated as a student panelist at the 2010 University Diversity Retreat.
  • Kerry was appointed as the student representative to the President's Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion.
  • Tara and Kerry assisted in planning the Campus Conversation on Advancing Diversity and Inclusion (April 2011), a campus-wide forum for promoting issues of social justice.

She played a leadership role in various student organizations, including the Black Students Union, the Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity and the Ethic Studies Club.
