Native Americans: Challenges and Opportunities in Higher Education
Posted By Gary Wamsley On March 1, 2010 @ 3:48 pm In Area News | Comments Disabled
On Monday, March 8, from 7:00 to 9:00 p. m., at the Coloradoan meeting room, 1300 Riverside Ave., Fort Collins, the League of Women Voters of Larimer County will host a panel discussion on the unique challenges Native Americans face in institutions of higher education. Admission is free and the public is welcome.
Because most information about Native American life and culture is drawn from media stereotypes, there is a lack of accurate understanding in our communities about Native American experience. To counter these stereotypes, the program will look at one important aspect of their experience, focusing on “Native Americans: Challenges and Opportunities in Higher Education.”
The program features a panel of Native American CSU students – Melody Jones, Goldlin Wall, and Tiffani Kelly – and Roe Bubar, J.D., Associate Professor in Ethnic Studies/School of Social Work and Chair, Women’s Studies Board at CSU. The League invites the public to an informative panel discussion on an issue that remains largely unknown.
