What We've Been Up To...
National Institute for Native Leadership in Higher Education
Greeley, CO
Our coordinator, Corrine had the opportunity to travel to the University of Northern Colorado to attend the annual National Institute for Native Leadership in Higher Education. NINLHE is an alliance of higher education professionals committed to building strong Native communities by affecting meaningful change in higher education policies and practices that support and improve the educational experiences and success of Native students. The annual institute provides culturally relevant and evidence based professional development in areas that enhance the knowledge of Native and non-Native administrators, faculty, and professional staff who work with Native student populations.  

The elder in residence for this year's institute was Dr. Joe Suina (Cochiti). Keynote speakers included Michael Martin (Onondaga), the Executive Director for Native American Community Services of Erie and Niagara Counties and John Gritts (Cherokee).
Campus Visit
The ITRC and Native students welcomed youth from the Upward Bound program at the University of New Mexico for a tour of campus, interactive activity, and lunch.
