What is CORES?
The Council of Racial and Ethnic Students or C.O.R.E.S is comprised of four cultural communities at Michigan State University. These communities are represented by four student organizations: North American Indigenous Student Organization (NAISO), Black Student Alliance (BSA), Asian Pacific American Student Organization (APASO) and Culturas de las Razas Unidas (CRU). These communities help students to better understand themselves and others through cultural and social activities. Additionally, these communities serve as advocates for their members by staying abreast of issues that impact their respective community, and by working with University faculty, staff, and administration in addressing concerns. CORES work to promote social and cultural understanding through important cultural events including: MSU Annual Pow Wow of Love, Native Heritage Month, Cultural Vogue/Lunar New Year, APA Heritage Month, Night Market, Brown Pride, the Black Power Rally, Black History Month, the African American Celebratory, Latin Explosion, Dia de la Mujer, Chicano History Month, and much more! Each year, the CORES works together to put on a collaborative cultural celebration called Spartan Remix
