The Center works to remove barriers from and build bridges to communication, understanding, and cooperation among people, groups, and institutions with a special focus on issues of human diversity and race relations.

The NCHR's goals are to be attained through:
  • Communication with local, state, and national constituencies.
  • Conciliation among diverse populations.
  • Citizen engagement in deliberative dialogue.
  • Collaboration with campus and community groups whose mission
    complements that of the Center.
