The Institute is a time for professional development, networking with other educators, and personal renewal. Our training sessions are developed by experts in fields on practices vital to Native student success. Attendance at the Institute is purposely limited to provide participants with an intensive experience that focuses equally on knowledge and skill building, information sharing, and the opportunity to draw upon the accumulated wisdom and experiences of the presenters as well as colleagues.
In an atmosphere of collaboration, friendship, and fun, participants are also offered opportunities for spiritual renewal and personal empowerment. Each day will begin with prayer and reflection by our Elder-In-Residence. With his extensive background in higher education, he will offer valuable context in which to consider our shared experiences.
The next Annual Institute will be co-sponsored by the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) and NINLHE at the beautiful UNC campus located in Greeley, Colorado.
Specific dates will be announced at a later date.
Who Should Attend?
