CORE Virtual Series

Emory University’s commitment to access, equity, and inclusion is unwavering. We are dedicated to creating a well-rounded class with students from different backgrounds, experiences, and intellectual perspectives. We strive to shape a class that is representative of all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.

Traditionally, Emory’s Cultural Overnight Recruitment Experience (CORE) Program has been a three-day, overnight visit. This year, due to Coronavirus, we invite students to participate in our reimagined virtual series - Cultural Outreach, Recruitment, and Education (CORE).

CORE Virtual Series is designed to support the recruitment of talented, high-achieving high school seniors who are either first-generation college students and/or from underrepresented cultural or socioeconomic backgrounds.

Program Details

The purpose of the CORE Virtual Series is to serve as a support system for underrepresented students navigating the college application process. Through the programming, we desire to:

  • bridge educational gaps by engaging in conversations related to the admission process
  • introduce the heart and culture of the Emory community
  • share about Emory's four undergraduate colleges
  • build community for students who want a safe space for mentoring and encouragement in the application process

Seniors who choose to participate will have opportunities to talk with faculty, staff, and current students throughout the program.

Topics and Dates

The CORE Virtual Series will run from August through April, supporting students all the way through the application, admission, and enrollment process. Topics will include monthly webinars, drop-in office hours with admission staff, and faculty-led TedX Talks. 

Exact dates of sessions will be provided on a monthly basis. When available, sessions will be recorded in case the time does not fit with your personal schedule.
