The purpose of the Conference of Registrars in Jesuit Institutions (CORe) shall be to promote the advancement of education, particularly Jesuit higher education, and to contribute effectively to the accomplishment of the purpose and objectives of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. (Taken from the CORe Constitution, which can be found here.)



The Conference of Registrars in Jesuit Institutions (CORe) was established c. 1980 to promote best practices within the registrar’s profession and especially within the realm of Jesuit higher education. CORe members attend annual conferences that coincide with annual AACRAO meetings (American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers).

CORe members engage in an active, often daily, exchange of ideas via a shared listserv, immediately responding to each other’s questions and concerns regarding such diverse matters as the current interpretations of the Department of Education’s policies on distance learning and gainful employment; of the best technologies to support the paperless office; and, electronic transcripts.


Quote of the week

"The greater. The better. The elusive idea of personifying the Magis in everything we do lives at the core of a Jesuit education. When we work, we must work as hard as we can. When we plan, we plan boldly. When we dream, we dream big."
Edward Cullen, Co-Founder, Bridge-USA, Fordham University '09
