Who We Are

CORA (Center for Organizational Responsibility and Advancement) is founded in response to President Obama’s call to improve the lives of boys and men of color facing educational disparities. We are a professional educational organization committed to training faculty, staff, and administrators to enhance their skills to better serve historically underrepresented and underserved students. We provide professional development training for all educators to advance their teaching skills and enhance the learning experience of boys and college men of color with an explicit focus on racial equity in education.
