SpeakOut at the recent NCORE Conference

NCORE - National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education
May 30 - June 4, 2016
San Francisco, CA (Hilton Union Square)
NCORE, the leading national conference on the issues of race and ethnicity in American higher education, drew some 3500 people to the most recent conference held in San Franciso. There were dozens of  pre-conference institutes, workshops, keynotes and special events where individuals and institutions shared their on-the-ground knowledge about current issues, program development, student development, academic assessment tools, effective theoretical frameworks, latest practice-based research findings and radical and innovative experiential curriculum to transform higher education in its mission for diversity and inclusion for students, staff, faculty and leadership.
A number of SpeakOut speakers were involved in presenting at the conference. Hundreds of attendees stopped by our booth in the Exhibit Hall to meet our staff Jean Caiani and Felicia Gustin and the speakers listed below. We hosted conference booksignings as well as offered outstanding books and DVDs for purchase (many of which you can now find in our web store).
