About this Journal

The Thomas L. Hill Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity (ISCORE) is a comprehensive forum on issues of race and ethnicity at Iowa State University and beyond. The local conference is designed to model the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education (NCORE).This site presents an archive of presentations given at ISCORE, and will soon include abstracts of all presentations dating back to the first ISCORE conference. Slides, handouts, and other conference materials are available for download when available.

Each year, the NCORE-ISCORE Project Office accepts applications from students interested in attending NCORE. These students then present knew knowledge gained from their NCORE experience at ISCORE the following year. Presentations from the latest cohort  of NCORE-ISCORE Project Scholars can be found in the Featured Articles section and all NCORE-ISCORE Project Scholar presentations can be found under the Collections tab.
