Back to University Action Projects
The Center provides a comprehensive approach to our Native American programs and services. There are three objectives:
A grant was written and received to fund this project at $358,000 per year for 5 years. This will involve the appointment/hiring of a full time administrative assistant, two graduate assistants and student tutors.
The grant only addressed one aspect of a comprehensive approach to services provided. The priority was to develop and build an Indigenous Center that includes several other key University initiatives as well as, develop a academic department and projected facility. The grant only represents one program and in my estimation, is just the beginning phase. Identifying external funding for facilities to support the project is an important next step in the process.
Classification = A. This Project is now fully funded for personnel and moving forward – classification A. Funding for a facility will address outside sources (foundations).
