A timeline of events.
NCRF began its service to underserved and underrepresented students in 1999 in response to California Proposition 209, which banned affirmative action policies at state colleges, disrupting the already tenuous relationship between minorities and college admissions. On February 26th of the following year, NCRF hosted the First Annual Black College Expo™, an event that highlights Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) and other postsecondary institutions to provide admissions and scholarship information to students, parents, and other visitors in attendance.

National College Resources has hosted over 150 College Expos and were forced to cease due to COVID-19 pandemic. Due to this crisis, NCRF’s need to serve students and families emerged Black College Expo LIVE, Graduate School Symposium and Virtual Career Expo-All LIVE Online Virtual Experiences with over 6,000 attendees participating. NCRF TV was launched as a channel to be able to connect to students and families during COVID to provide information, tools and resources for students to navigate school and life. It also was created to open a door for young people of color to have a place to share their creative work.
