This program validates cultural knowledge and identity by providing a space for faculty and staff to share their stories with undergraduate students of similar backgrounds. Faculty and staff that identify as Native/Indigenous will be invited to participate in this series to share cultural knowledge, their lived experiences about identity or other themes they deemed appropriate to promote understanding of diverse experiences within the Native and Indigenous community. Students are encouraged to ask questions and complete a 1 minute essay at the end of the presentation.
Through this program participants will reflect on how the guest’s presentation promotes their college persistence and sense of belonging on campus evidenced by completing a one minute paper at end of each chat. All are welcome.
