Native American, Indigenous Studies Initiative to establish concentration

Author: Caelyn Pender

The University’s Native American and Indigenous Studies Initiative plans to establish a concentration with the help of a $750,000 grant awarded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation last month.
The NAISI Steering Committee and staff will work to implement the concentration before the end of the three-year grant period with the help of new Associate Director Rae Gould, who was hired this summer.
“From my perspective, it’s one of the most important things we can do for Indigenous Peoples,” Gould said
