USD Diversity Leaders Appointed to National Council
Jesús Treviño, Ph.D., associate vice president for diversity, and Lena Tran, intercultural programming coordinator, will serve for three years on the council that consists of 45 members and four students. They will help provide recommendations to the University of Oklahoma's Southwest Center for Human Relations Studies (SWCHRS), the SWCHRS executive committee and the NCORE staff for the planning and programming of the annual NCORE conference.
This year’s conference runs May 31-June 4 in San Francisco and will draw more than 5,000 attendees, including about a dozen USD students, faculty and staff.
SWCHRS launched the first annual NCORE to address the resurgence of racist incidents in higher education. Since its inception, the conference has evolved into a 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 campuses across the United States.
