BASIC Race Awareness Seminar

(Designed by Civil Rights Activist C.T. Vivian)

The BASIC (Black Action Strategies & Information Center) Race Awareness Seminar has a long history at NC State. Our university first sponsored this two-day seminar in 1975 and has since graduated over 1,000 participants. Designed and often facilitated by renowned civil rights activist C. T. Vivian, this seminar requires participants to engage in an intense, honest appraisal of their individual and collective racial attitudes. NC State’s CVM has sent 100 students, faculty, and staff to this seminar. Click here for more information.


The National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) has conducted programs on hundreds of college and university campuses across North American and the Pacific. They have launched campus affiliate chapters on sixty campuses where faculty, students, and administrators have made an institutional commitment to using NCBI programs as a mechanism to provide an ongoing response to discrimination, oppression and handling controversial issues.

An NCBI campus affiliate is made up of a team of students, faculty and staff from various disciplines who provide a powerful leadership resource for the campus. The team provides pro-active workshops to improve the overall campus climate for diversity by building a more inclusive environment and teaches skills in how to effectively shift prejudicial attitudes and be powerful allies for one another. The team is also trained to intervene when tough intergroup conflict arises on the campus or between the campus and the community.

NC State's CVM has had 100 students, faculty, and staff participate in NCBI trainings and now has 100 NCBI trainers on staff who have completed a 3 day train the trainer training session. Click here for more information.
